This autumn sees the fiftieth anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the quintessential Cold War crisis which Arthur Schleslinger, Jr. termed ‘the most dangerous moment in human history’. In order to mark this seminal event the Centre for Intelligence and International Security Studies (CIISS) at Aberystwyth University and the Cambridge Intelligence Group (seminar), University of Cambridge are hosting a major international conference at Gregynog Hall (http://www.wales.ac.uk/en/UniversityConferenceCentre/GregynogHall.aspx) in the idyllic setting of rural Wales. The conference will seek to address the legacies and lessons of the Cuban Missile Crisis by means of a number of papers and roundtable discussions. The conference will feature contributions from a number of the most eminent international scholars of nuclear history, intelligence, espionage, political science and the Cold War. The continuing relevance of the lessons of 1962 cannot be overstated and this multidisciplinary conference will be of interest to intelligence professionals, historians, political scientists, sociologists, and policymakers.
