Description

The new international history has provided a framework for critiquing the narrow assumptions of existing historiographies of international politics and exploring a range of new themes in respect of agency, chronology, and gender. This two-­day workshop will highlight the role of women as participants and agents in international political life since the early modern age. Its aim is to explore the many ways in which women have been involved in diplomacy and in international politics, highlighting the diversity of their activities and the significance of their contributions. In focusing on women, we hope to bring to the fore new themes and to make new suggestions relevant to the characterization of developments in international history. Conference jointly organised by the University of Sidney and the Italian branch of the Monash University (Prato)
