Within the profound renovation in the study of diplomacy in recent years, the New Diplomatic History (NDH) proposes new interpretative models that integrate, in addition to political- institutional history, the social, cultural and economic one. The ‘New Diplomatic History’ favours interdisciplinary, global, international and transnational research perspectives; scholars of different periodizations are called to confrontation, debate and group work. The conference, therefore, analyses, in the long term, the recent developments of diplomacy studies in Italy and in the international context focusing on the most original aspects and methodologies of the New Diplomatic History, reflecting on the opportunities and challenges of this new way to investigate the diplomatic practice. The conference would like to mark some aspects of diplomacy such as: -languages and communication; -places and spaces; -norms and practices; -culture; -diplomatic and para-diplomatic personnel; -evolutions and functioning of diplomatic institutions; -diplomatic corps and diplomatic milieus.
The event is aimed at an audience of scholars and Ph.D. of different disciplines and will be part of a cycle of conferences and seminars on methodologies of research organised by the Doctorate in Literary, Linguistic and Historical Studies (DILLS), active at the Department of Humanities (DIPSUM) of the University of Salerno and the Historical research into urban transformation processes (HOST) of Vrije Universiteit of Brussels.
