Program 7:00 p.m.

The Polish Consulate, 233 Madison Avenue at 37th Street, Manhattan

 

Speaker:
Professor Diane Snyder
Princeton University, Department of Politics

Ms. Snyder's presentation will focus on recent events and activities in National Security and Intelligence, such as the NSA warrantless wiretapping story, concern for privacy in the digital age and the confluence of popular culture and media on the public's perception of US policy regarding topics such as torture. Her presentation will seek to inform, demystify and demythify issues regarding intelligence activities, the role of the press and impact on society. Historic examples as well as current events will serve to illustrate key points, such as the tension between national security and civil liberties, especially in times of national crises.

Ms. Snyder is currently teaching at Princeton University in the Department of Politics. She is a graduate of the CIA's elite Career Trainee Program and served on assignments both in Washington DC and internationally. She joined the faculty of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton in 1995 and in the private sector was Director at the David Sarnoff Research Center and served as Senior Intelligence Research Scientist at the Rand corporation.
