Rethinking Diplomacy

For the 2012-13 theme, the Institute for Historical Studies at The
University of Texas at Austin envisions a fundamental and substantive
re-thinking of scholarly approaches to diplomacy as a worldwide,
multi-disciplinary, historical practice.

Applicants should state unambiguously how they take a new and creative
position vis a vis the individuals, communities, and states that have
frequently defined the historical study of diplomacy.

We are particularly interested in exploring the meaning and practice
of diplomacy in pre-modern times and non-Western societies and in a
wide range of questions. How have different societies defined
diplomacy? What were the underlining concepts of diplomatic
engagement? In what ways was the practice of diplomacy gendered?  What
was the process by which one became a diplomat? Was statecraft clearly
distinguished from actual diplomatic dealing or were the two
synonymous? How have individuals and organizations conceived and
practiced diplomacy in non-conventional sites and spaces?

This IHS project is part of a broader cross-campus initiative on
"Rethinking Diplomacy" that also includes the Lyndon B. Johnson School
of Public Affairs, the Robert S. Strauss Center for International
Security and Law, the Department of Government, the Center for
European Studies, and British Studies. Together, the IHS and the
campus-wide initiative aims to interrogate, stretch, and ultimately
re-shape the ways the relations between societies and their
representatives are conceptualized.

For further information on the IHS, the theme, the programming, and
applications for residential fellowships for 2012-13, see the IHS
