I had the pleasure of speaking with Mike Ardaiolo of the Public Diplomat, a podcast and website produced by students and scholars at Syracuse University’s public diplomacy program. Here is the link: U.S. Public Diplomacy in a Digital Context
I speak about my research into how digital platforms have been incorporated into US public diplomacy, and how this reflects broader institutional shifts in the practice and discourse of PD. Basically, I argue that technology is not driving change by istelf, but rather serves as a context for reconceptualizing PD and the larger field of diplomatic practice. I also talk a bit about the US strategy toward Ukraine and other programs.
