(25 March 2017) A panel of university deans leading academic programs in diplomacy will investigate the state of public diplomacy in the academic world in the next installment of the First Monday series. That discussion takes place on Monday, 3 April 2017 at American Foreign Service Association in Washington, D.C.
Taking part in the panel are:
– Ernest J. Wilson III, dean of the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at University of Southern California
– Amb. Reuben E Brigety II, dean of the Elliot School of Public Affairs at George Washington University
– James Goldgeier, dean of the School of International Service at American University
– Joel S Hellman, dean of the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University
The panel will examine implications for public diplomacy in recent trends in international relations curricula. Participants are expected to discuss student demand and number of courses in diplomatic studies, the role of public diplomacy in their curricula, and availability of practitioners to teach as adjunct professors. The panel will also review recent innovations in their departments as well as changes they would like to make if resources were available.
