Professor to Discuss Anticipatory Intelligence at Friends of Merrill-Cazier Library Fall Lecture

By Kellianne Gammill |

The Friends of the Merrill-Cazier Library have announced their Fall Lecture. Political Science Professor Jeannie Johnson will discuss the concept of Anticipatory Intelligence, the groundbreaking Center for Anticipatory Intelligence at USU that offers courses and research within this field, and the 21st century “threatscape” that requires an anticipatory intelligence skill set.

The lecture will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 28 in room 101 of the Merrill-Cazier Library.

Johnson is the director of the Center for Anticipatory Intelligence on USU’s campus. She worked within the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Intelligence as a member of the Balkan Task Force from 1998-1999 and served with the U.S. State Department in Embassies Paris and Zagreb.

The Cultural Topography analytic method she pioneered with co-author Matt Berrett was featured in CIA’s June 2011 edition of Studies in Intelligence.

Johnson’s primary research interest examines the impact of national and organizational cultures on the formation of security policy.

The lecture is free and open to the public. All are invited to attend. Learn more about CAI through
