A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
牛津大學人文研究中心於2014731日舉辦「近代早期外交與文化」國際研討會,以跨領域之研究方法來審視官僚體制下之外交表現,如儀式、外交關係中的象徵性溝通與條件交換、文化交流中的外交協商過程等。眾所皆知,外交官是重要的政治中(仲)介人,在國際關係有深遠影響,儘管如此,他們在轉介文化概念、物品時所必須行使的其他身分,如文化大使、作者、譯者、經濟(經紀)文化人的角色卻被忽略。此外,外交對文化的衝擊一直是表徵在文學與其他種類的系列媒體中,這些日益明顯的重要表述與外交大使在推動爭經文化交流所行使的身分與手法是該會探討的重點。準此,該研討會的目的乃進一步推動吾人對於近代早期的外交實踐、國際交流動態之了解,以及外交思想如何與歐洲以外之其他國家間的文化、政治進程互動。
 
[Original CFP]
The conference builds upon the recent ‘cultural turn’ in diplomatic studies that has seen more innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to a subject that was once viewed in heavily bureaucratic and constitutional terms. Scholars are increasingly appreciating the importance of ritual and other forms of symbolic communication in diplomatic practices and the role of diplomatic processes in cultural exchanges. Diplomats were important political brokers whose actions could have profound implications for international relations, but they played an equally important role in the transfer and adaptation of cultural ideas and artefacts through their activities as cultural agents, authors and brokers. The profound impact of diplomacy on culture in this period is, moreover, seen in the increasing prominence of representations of diplomacy in literature and a range of other media. The aim of this conference is to further our understanding of early modern diplomatic practices, of the dynamics of diplomatic exchanges both within and without Europe, and how diplomatic ideas and practices interacted with other cultural and political processes.
 
We will consider papers on any aspect of early modern diplomacy, but we will particularly welcome proposals for papers and panels on the following topics:
§ The impact of literary developments on, and use of literary texts in, diplomatic practice
§ The role of diplomatic processes and channels in the circulation of texts and literary ideas
§ Diplomacy and translation
§ Representations of diplomacy in literary texts and art
§ The wider cultural reception of diplomacy and evolving diplomatic practices
§ The material culture of early modern diplomacy
§ Ritual and protocol in diplomatic encounters
§ Diplomatic personnel, training, and careers
§ Diplomacy and cross-cultural exchange
§ Cultures of diplomatic practice and exchange
§ Gender and diplomacy
§ Early modern legal and philosophical attitudes to, and influences on, diplomacy
