Description: The post-conference gathers PhD students, early career researchers, senior scholars and practitioners in public diplomacy with a focus to expand the PD body of knowledge, address gaps in the literature, inform and advance PD practices, heighten visibility of PD among policy makers in government and higher education. We aim to work towards identifying a new and innovative research agenda that recognizes how far PD scholarship has come since 9/11, consider where we need to go next, and discuss opportunities for innovative collaborations among multidisciplinary scholars crossing boundaries. The sessions include “Emerging PhD & postdoctoral research” (chair R. S. Zaharna, American U) , "State of the Art, State of the Future: New Directions in Public Diplomacy Research" (chair Kathy Fitzpatrick, American U), “Research-practice collaboration” (chairs Alina Dolea, Bournemouth U; James Pamment, Lund U), “Public Diplomacy practice” (chair Jay Wang, Center on Public Diplomacy). A networking lunch is scheduled to allow for more talks on presentations and collaborations in future projects.
