The EUI Diplomatic/International History Working Group hosts a talk on the complex realities of diplomatic communication at the end of the 18th century.

In this event, we are joined by Jonathan Singerton, lecturer and research associate at the University of Innsbruck, who will introduce us to the complex realities of diplomatic communication at the end of the 18th century. Jonathan discusses the entry of American diplomats into the Francophone and Ottoman worlds of diplomacy, highlighting the influential role which language played as both an enabler and inhibitor to diplomacy in the first years of American independence. What impact did acculturation with a specific court's linguistic and cultural milieu have on an ambassadorial mission's possible success or failure? Günes Isiksel, assistant professor at the Medeniyet University in Istanbul and specialist in early modern Ottoman diplomacy, supplements Jonathan’s presentation with a commentary. 

Join us for this special event, and don't miss the exciting talks and the stimulating discussion that will follow.
