CIA historian visits SRU Dec. 4

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Nicholas Dujmovic, a member of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s history staff since 2005, visits Slippery Rock University Dec. 4.

Dujmovic’ lecture is at 12:30 p.m. in 111 Spotts World Culture Building. The visit is sponsored by SRU’s history and political science departments and was organized by Thomas Pearcy, SRU history professor and former Dujmovic colleague.

Dujmovic joined the CIA in 1990 as an analyst on the USSR and East Europe. He later served as a speechwriter for the director of Central Intelligence, editor of the President’s Daily Briefing and a manager of analysts.

Most of his work is classified, but his unclassified work on agency operations and culture has appeared in intelligence anthologies as well as in the journals “Studies in Intelligence” and “Intelligence and National Security.”

In 2004, Yale University published, “The Literary Spy,” his collection of quotations on intelligence and espionage.

He is currently working on a project dealing with U.S. intelligence and the 1982 Falklands War.

Dujmovic graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in 1980 and spent a decade as a commissioned officer, serving on various ships and teaching national security policy and history at the academy.

He received his doctorate from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 1996.

A sample of his work is available here.

A question-and-answer session will follow.
