Cultural Diplomacy as a Listening Project?

Awesome, AWESOME conference coming up at SIS!!! Make sure you come, if in town. Please RSVP to: yelena.osipova@student.american.edu :)

U. S. public diplomacy historically has been preoccupied with diverse forms of message delivery: “telling America’s story” to the world. But to what extent does the work of diplomacy include listening?

“Cultural Diplomacy as a Listening Project?” will bring together key stakeholders in the future of cultural diplomacy, including members of the policy community, diplomacy professionals, and academic researchers, to explore the challenges to, and potential for, listening across different approaches to cultural diplomacy.


This one-day conference will be held on November 8, 2010, 12:00-4:30pm on the campus of American University. (For directions: http://www.american.edu/sis/about/directions.cfm).

For further information please contact the conference organizers (albro@american.edu) or consult our website: http://www.american.edu/sis/ic/2010-Cultural-Diplomacy-Conference.cfm.

We hope to see you there!

Help us spread the word: invite friends and colleagues!
