Call for Papers for the Panel:
Art as Cultural Diplomacy
As part of 
7th Euroacademia Forum of Critical Studies: Asking Big Questions Again
23 – 24 November 2018
Nice, Cτte d’Azur, France
Deadline for Paper Proposals: 15th of October 2018

Panel Organizer: Cassandra Sciortino, University of California, Santa

Panel Description

The panel Art as Cultural Diplomacy seeks papers that explore the function
of art (in its broadest definition) as an instrument of cultural diplomacy
by the state and, especially, by nongovernmental actors. The main theme of
the session is the question of art and diplomacy in Europe before and after
the fall of the Berlin Wall. This focus however does not limit the thematic
universe of papers to be included in the panel to Europe. Papers are welcome
which explore issues related to the role of art, diplomacy and the
politicization of Europe, as are those which consider how the arts have
pursued or resisted East-West dichotomies and other narratives of alterity
in Europe and worldwide. The panel seeks to combine a wide range of
interdisciplinary perspectives to explore how art -its various practices,
history, and theory - are an important area of inquiry in the expanding
field of cultural diplomacy. Papers addressing the role of art in
consolidating soft power of states are welcome together with contributions
addressing the role of art as cultural diplomacy in the context of
significant historical political events. 

Some examples of topics include
•	How can art serve as a neutral platform for exchange to promote
dialogue and understanding between foreign states?
•	How can art, including organized festivals (i.e. film, art, music.),
cultivate transnational identities that undermine political dichotomies and
narratives of alterity making in international relations?
•	The implications for art as an instrument of diplomacy in a
postmodern age where geopolitics and power are increasingly mobilized by
image based structures of persuasion.
•	How has/can art facilitate cohesion between European Union member
states and candidate states that effectively responds to the EU’s efforts to
create “unity in diversity.”
•	The politics of mapping the world: mental and cartographic
•	Community based art as a social practice to engage issues of
political identity
•	The difference between art as cultural diplomacy and propaganda
•	The digital revolution and the emergence of social media as
platforms for art to communicate across social, cultural, and national
boundaries?
•	Diplomacy in the history of art in Europe
•	Artists as diplomats
•	Art history as diplomacy--exhibitions, post-colonial criticism,
global art history, and other revisions to the conventional boundaries of
Europe and its history of art
•	The international activity of cultural institutes
•	Art as cultural resistance in non-democratic regimes 
•	Art as instrument of international promotion 
•	Art as instrument of social change and democratization 
•	Art, social movements and protest 
•	The critical function of art in cultural diplomacy
