With the new term underway, we have prepared a very special event to welcome all EUI members with an interest in the history of diplomacy and international relations.
In this workshop,we will be joined by Prof. Jan Hennings (Central European University) to discuss the transformation of the field of Diplomatic History over the last decade. To this end, we have organised two separate sessions:
- From 11 am to 12 pm: A roundtable with Prof. Jan Hennings and Prof. Glenda Sluga (HEC Department), moderated by Sven Mörsdorf (HEC researcher). The speakers will discuss the impact and implications of the so-called New Diplomatic History for the field as a whole, the opportunities and challenges of working together as early and late modern historians, and what it means to write diplomatic history in the age of the global and transnationalism. Is diplomatic history still marking time ? Or is it finally the time of diplomacy ?
- From 1.30 pm to 3 pm: A workshop chaired by Klaudia Kuchno (HEC researcher) and featuring presentations by HEC researchers. Ela Bozok, Rebecca Orr, Takuya Shimada, and Thomas Soden will draw on specific case studies from their PhD projects to reflect on the benefits and difficulties of writing new diplomatic history at an early academic stage. Prof. Hennings, researchers, and participants will discuss some of these practical issues, and debate on how young scholars can enrich the field and open new avenues of research.
