Event details

This research seminar examines ways in which public diplomacy should be understood at a theoretical level. It focuses on the key themes of hegemony, morality and power, using the philosophical writings of Antonio Gramsci as a guide. Gramsci is an important source of authority for many academics interested in International Relations (particularly World Order studies), Communications Theory, Culture Studies, Postcolonial Studies and Political Communications. His widespread absence from literature on public diplomacy is therefore interesting in and of itself but so too is public diplomacy’s general lack of sufficient theorisation. This seminar looks to engage with some of those issues and to create a debate about them.
