TitelRethinking Diplomacy. Residential fellowships for 2012-13 at the Institute for Historical Studies, UT-Austin
BeschreibungRethinking Diplomacy

For the 2012-13 theme, the Institute for Historical Studies at The University of Texas at Austin envisions a fundamental and substantive re-thinking of scholarly approaches to diplomacy as a worldwide, multi-disciplinary, historical practice.

Applicants should state unambiguously how they take a new and creative position vis a vis the individuals, communities, and states that have frequently defined the historical study of diplomacy.

We are particularly interested in exploring the meaning and practice of diplomacy in pre-modern times and non-Western societies and in a wide range of questions. How have different societies defined diplomacy? What were the underlining concepts of diplomatic engagement? In what ways was the practice of diplomacy gendered? What was the process by which one became a diplomat? Was statecraft clearly distinguished from actual diplomatic dealing or were the two synonymous? How have individuals and organizations conceived and practiced diplomacy in non-conventional sites and spaces?

This IHS project is part of a broader cross-campus initiative on "Rethinking Diplomacy" that also includes the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law, the Department of Government, the Center for European Studies, and British Studies. Together, the IHS and the campus-wide initiative aims to interrogate, stretch, and ultimately re-shape the ways the relations between societies and their representatives are conceptualized.

Applications should be submitted electronically to the Director, Julie Hardwick, by January 15, 2012, at For further information on the IHS, the theme, the programming, and applications for residential fellowships for 2012-13, see the IHS website:
