For two special issues of Diplomatica we invite proposals for essays on (1) the history and culture of diplomatic treaties; and (2) aspects of diplomacy’s relationship to literature. Essays may cover any historical period up to the present-day. The central questions that the special issues pose are:

(1) Treaties

– How and why have diplomatic texts evolved?

– How has their hermeneutics changed over time?

– Are treaties better understood as literary artifacts or as socio-political constructs?

– What can the evolution of treaties tell us about the evolution of diplomacy and the diplomatic profession?

(2) Literature

Today, as the workings of humanity are increasingly linked with the destruction wrought by the Anthropocene, ‘the era of man,’ we feel compelled to re-examine our links with human and other-than-human others ever more closely. Confronting numerous crises, hostilities and conflicts, as well as witnessing an unprecedented momentum of social, political, medical, technological and linguistic change, we are now facing the challenge of redefining our goals, policies and discourses within the field of the humanities yet again.

We welcome contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

There is power in the written word. It can take us on journeys, convey the nuanced as well as the palpable, and compel us to feel. It can also empower us to act, to challenge, and to overcome.

Writing can be a form of claiming – or reclaiming – our time, our space, and our voice. It’s an opportunity to fight feelings of powerlessness —Susan Taylor

The Vernon press is issuing the following call for contributions to the collective volume

William Shakespeare: Tensions and Tempest

Though scholars indicate a few later works, The Tempest can be read as Shakespeare’s last play, and as such, sums up the various interests, concerns and themes that inform his work, be it the magic of peripheral spaces, the rivalries for power, or the social relationships that bind family and class. In short, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s Testament.

The growing list of “Netflix Nations” (to invoke the title of Ramon Lobato’s 2019 book) means that there are only a few territories such as China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria that remain outside its purview. In recent years, a number of streaming giants have emerged in the Western world– mostly notably, Amazon and Disney+ –that compete tightly within international markets.
