A colloquium on early modern diplomats
In 2013 Dr Tracey Sowerby, a member of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Cluster, was awarded a small research grant for an interdisciplinary colloquium on early modern diplomats. Bringing together leading international scholars, this colloquium will analyse understudied themes in early modern diplomatic history, such as female diplomacy, ambassadorial counsel, and the ambassadorial household. It will also feature papers on the diplomatic corps of several European states and monarchies, as well as papers examining the range of diplomats posted to particular European courts. Please note that this has had to be rescheduled to 2014. More details will be posted in the Cluster's events pages in due course.
