Drawing on the worlds of espionage, military deceptions, and police
stings, former CIA operations officer Gene Coyle will present
of remarkable creativity in situations initially hidden from public view
and pose the central question, Can you teach someone to be more
creative, whether spying or developing a clever business plan?
Coyle, who speaks Russian, Greek, Portuguese, and German, spent
his 30 years with the Central Intelligence Agency working undercover in
various countries, including Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Brazil, Portugal, and
Greece. Coyle has been teaching at IU since 2004, for the first two
years under a CIA academic outreach program and more recently as an
adjunct faculty member in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs
and the Global Village LLC. In January, he will join the faculty of the
new IU School of International and Global Studies as a Professor of
Practice. He is the author of the spy novels The Dream Merchant of
Lisbon, No Game for Amateurs and Diamonds and Deceit and has written
articles for the CIA's Studies in Intelligence journal.
