Cursusdoelen
-- students will gain knowledge about the principles and definitions of cultural deiplomacy

-- students will be able to evaluate the principles of cultural diplomacy as a form of soft power in relation to traditional instruments of diplomacy and foreign policy
Inhoud
This course examines diplomacy based on the exchange of ideas, values, traditions and other aspects of culture or identity. Using the Cultural Cold War as a case study, we will analyze the way the United States used instruments of cultural and public diplomacy to win the hearts and minds of global publics in its ideological contest with the appeal of the Soviet Union in the postwar period. American abstract expressionism, jazz musicians, modern kitchens, design, and intellectual magazines and conferences were used as tools of “soft power” (Joseph Nye). This course will analyze how cultural exchanges in fields such as the arts, sports, literature, music, science, business, and economy have been used to establish relations between transatlantic partners. After studying the literature, students will explore one case study in a small research project (which may concentrate on cultural history of international relations).
