This book explores the secret relations between theatre and diplomacy from the Tudors to the Treaty of Westphalia. It offers an original insight into the art of diplomacy in the 1580-1655 period through the prism of literature, theatre and material history. Contributors investigate English, Italian and German plays of Renaissance theoretical texts on diplomacy, lifting the veil on the intimate relations between ambassadors and the artistic world and on theatre as an unexpected instrument of ‘soft power’. The volume provides an international cross-cultural focus on the negotiation of European political and confessional conflicts and the official and non-official strategies of appeasement. The strong international array of up-and-coming and established scholars in literature and diplomatic history investigates early modern diplomatic forms of preservation of a European entente in the wake of the emergence of the nation-state.

  • Formes de la diplomatie (XVIe-XXIe s.) Forms of Diplomacy (16th-2&st c.), eds. Nathalie Duclos & Nathalie Rivère de Carles, Caliban 54 (Presses Universitaires du Midi, 2015)

http://pum.univ-tlse2.fr/~no-54-Formes-de-la-diplomatie-XVIe~.html#

Ce volume bilingue se penche sur l’évolution des formes théoriques et pratiques de la diplomatie politique, économique et culturelle depuis la première modernité. Il met la diplomatie classique en perspective en analysant les formes marginales, alternatives et innovantes de la diplomatie d’hier et d’aujourd’hui. L’utilisation et la théorisation de la diplomatie culturelle (soft power) et de la diplomatie commerciale font l’objet d’une étude critique de la part de chercheurs en histoire, en littérature et en linguistique. Les chapitres, en anglais et en français, de ce volume replacent la diplomatie gouvernementale dans le contexte de l’action diplomatique d’acteurs non gouvernementaux. Par ailleurs, le volume s’attache à étudier l’influence et l’action de figures diplomatiques officielles et non officielles, réelles et fictionnelles, de façon à approfondir notre connaissance de la rhétorique et de la sémiotique accompagnant les pratiques diplomatiques.

This bilingual volume analyses the changing theoretical and practical forms of political, economic and cultural diplomacy from the early modern era to the questioning of the Westphalian system in the 20th and the 21st centuries. It contrasts mainstream diplomacy and marginal or alternative forms of diplomacy. The use and the theorization of cultural diplomacy (soft power) and of commercial diplomacy are questioned by leading experts in history, literature and linguistics. Essays in English and in French pit the hard power of government-to-government diplomacy against other levels of diplomatic undertakings involving nongovernmental stakeholders. In addition, this volume studies official and nonofficial diplomatic figures, real and fictional ambassadors, which allows us to consider the linguistic and stylistic features of the diplomatic rhetoric and practice. The essays also explore the role of art, literature and culture as diplomatic instruments and the artist as diplomat as new analytical tools in the study of diplomacy.
