Public diplomacy has been around for a long time, but modern American public diplomacy originates in Washington’s efforts to culturally penetrate the Soviet Union. Governments today realize that communicating with foreign publics is an imperative of international life. Scholars study culture to understand individual countries, yet another level of analysis seeks to explore the production, transmission, and influence of culture across national borders.

While International Relations typically focuses on political and economic forces, public diplomacy is concerned with the roles of mass opinion, propaganda, or strategic persuasion. As a field of scholarship, it exists on the periphery of several disciplines, where culture is defined in a broad anthropological sense. If traditional diplomacy is centered on state-to-state relations, especially among elites, public diplomacy employs technological advances in global communications which allows states to transcend narrow diplomatic channels or governments (especially closed authoritarian states) and reach the masses of people.

This course will focus on American public diplomacy from the perspective of international history, with particular reference to Germany since it was both the original target audience of America’s postwar reeducation plan and launching pad for cultural activity and transmission into the Eastern Bloc.
