Two Post Doc Positions: International Relations
and Digital Diplomacy
University of Copenhagen - Department of Political
15th May 2018
The research project “DIPLOFACE: Diplomatic Face
Work between Confidential Negotiations and Public
Display”: http://diploface.ku.dk/ , directed by
Professor Rebecca Adler-Nissen (Department of
Political Science, University of Copenhagen) is hiring
two Post Docs for three years. Start date: As soon as
possible and no later than 1 September 2018.
DIPLOFACE explores the relationship between
diplomatic negotiations and the public, taking the
concept of ‘face-work’ to the international level.
DIPLOFACE combines qualitative (participant
observation, interviews) and quantitative methods
(social network analysis, social data science),
generating new knowledge about how the
information revolution challenges and transforms
diplomacy, how leaders and diplomats handle new
media, and the role of face-saving and face
threatening strategies in international relations. The
Post Docs will contribute to the project by theorizing
and analyzing concrete cases of diplomatic face-work
and the digital mediation of national identities and
international conflicts. The project is funded by the
European Research Council.

CONFERENCES / КОНФЕРЕНЦИИ
From the academic ivory tower to the Studium Generale: Function, task and status of universities and university lecturers in public space
by Martin Göllnitz
Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce . The byline reflects the original authorship.
Call for Papers
November 8, 2018 to November 9, 2018
European History / Studies, History of Science, Medicine, and Technology, Intellectual History, Political History / Studies, Research and Methodology
Questions regarding the purpose and functions of universities and their staff have to fulfil is decided not only at the places of scientific practice or at ministerial levels, but also in public. Not only in the 20th century, but rather from their very origins have universities been shaped to varying degrees by their relationship with the public. As the public has always been involved in defining and delimiting what should and shouldn’t be regarded as science, thereby providing or withholding social recognition for science, the two areas have developed in mutual dependence. Though what is today known as the public sphere in democratic societies only emerged in the bourgeois era, the production of knowledge has always been shaped by its respective social context in which its practice was embedded. Examining the relationship between the university or science on the one hand and the public on the other hand therefore also allows us to gain insight into the society of the respective epoch. For this reason, the functions and tasks of universities are also reflected in areas such as religion, politics and economy.
The workshop offers the opportunity to examine the correlation between university and public from the Humboldt educational reforms to contemporary modernity. The aim is to reflect on the manifold connections between (teaching, learning or managing) actors in the academic field and those in the public field in Europe. A central question for this conference is the autonomy of the academic field, its development and its possible restriction towards the public, in a period characterized by the expansion of university institutions. This expansion is reflected, among other things, in the founding of new disciplines linked to the professionalisation and specialisation of the scientific and intellectual professions.
For these reasons, the planned workshop will serve to exchange current research approaches and perspectives of university history. The event is supposed to act as a platform on which current doctoral and postdoctoral projects in this field can be presented and put up for discussion. Geographically, the focus is on the universities in the German-speaking area; comparative studies that include case studies from other regions are also welcome.
The Call for Papers is aimed at young academics (doctoral and postdoctoral students) from the fields of history and related disciplines who wish to present the content and methodology of their current projects in approx. 20-minute lectures followed by a discussion (20 minutes). Interested parties are requested to send a short academic curriculum vitae with contact details and a lecture abstract of no more than one page by e-mail to Dr. Martin Göllnitz ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) by May 31, 2018 .
Thanks to the financial support of the Research Association for University History of the JGU Mainz, a travel and accommodation allowance can be offered for participants with an accepted presentation.

international Graduate Students Workshop
Date: October 11-12, 2018
The University of Delaware and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library
Call for Applications due June 8, 2018
With the generous support of the Terra Foundation for American Art, the University of Delaware’s Department of Art History and the Winterthur Program of American Material Culture will host a two-day International Graduate Student workshop on October 11 and 12, 2018. This workshop is part of a series of events in October 2018 to launch the project “ In Search of Global Impact of Asian Aesthetics on American Art and Material Culture.” ( http://sites.udel.edu/globalaestheticasiaamerica/ )
We invite graduate students from a variety of fields, from all regions of the world, to submit a short abstract of a dissertation in progress or a project that: 1) redefines the canon of art history, with a focus on the multidirectional impact of Asian aesthetics on American art and material culture, and/or 2) proposes new interpretations of the transcultural and transhistorical flow of aesthetics that not only redefine the geocultural boundaries of Asia and North America, but also rethink methodological formations of aesthetic emergence.
We strongly encourage proposals that consider the flow of global aesthetics beyond the circulation of objects, as well as those that examine “Asia” and “North America” as discursive structures or cultural constructs in connection with other world regions such as Africa, Europe, South America, among others. In sum: How do design ideas, patterns, and aesthetics travel across the globe, even when objects do not?
To apply, send a short abstract written in English (300-500 words) and a 2-page CV to:
“ email@example.com ” by June 8, 2018.
Applicants will be notified of decisions by July 8, 2018. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a dissertation chapter or excerpt, or paper, (9000-10000 words), to be pre-circulated and read before the workshop. Partha Mitter (Sussex, emeritus), Dorothy Ko (Barnard/Columbia), Lee Glazer (Freer/Sackler Galleries), Marco Musillo (Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz), with the Terra Foundation's guest critics: Zhang Gan and Chen Anying (Academy of Arts and Design, Tsinghua, Beijing), in addition to the faculty workshop advisors from the Department of Art History and the Winterthur Program of the University of Delaware.
Lodging and meals are provided for invited participants throughout the workshop. Applicants seeking travel support should include in the application a letter demonstrating the need and a budget plan.
In addition to the Terra Foundation, we thank the following organizations for their support: The University of Delaware’s Office of Graduate and Professional Education and the Center for Material Culture Studies, with grants from the Unidel Foundation and National Endowment of the Humanities.
