Diplomatic/International History Working Group

Diplomatic/International history has experienced a noteworthy revival in the last twenty years. Novel research questions, methodological approaches and theoretical tools revitalized to a great extent what for long was thought to be a “traditional” and “conservative” historiographical branch. Currently, more than ever before, diplomatic/international history is closely connected and is frequently interacting with social/cultural/intellectual/conceptual history, gender studies, history of information, history of international law, international relations theories and political economy. The aim of this group is to bring together people coming from versatile research backgrounds and with specialization in different historical periods – researchers whose work could contribute to a better understanding of the polyperspectival evolution of diplomatic practices and of inter-sate/international relations across time and space.
