About this event

This research seminar looks at the relationship between public diplomacy, early public diplomats and colonialism. It discusses the subject from three perspectives: 1) The view of colonial administrators engaged in public communications with colonial subjects; 2) The view of colonial subjects who worked with, and represented, the colonial administration abroad; and 3) those who sought to challenge and/or overthrow colonial regimes. This research seminar focuses on the end of colonial rule in India as its case study.
