Launching "DeepLomacy" Research Network
Time & Location
About the Event
"DeepLomacy" is an international research community for the fields of cultural-digital-public diplomacy. It aims to create a cross-disciplinarian community, develop academic discourse, connect researchers, and promote and discover shared research opportunities. This collaboration, between the Cultural Diplomacy Forum of the Simon Veil research Center for Contemporary European studies at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and 'DiplomMarket' by the Abba Eban Institute at the IDC Herzliya, endeavors to create a vibrant research community and network which will be designed for people with interest, mainly research interest, in the cultural-digital-public diplomacy triangle.
The community cornerstones are the sharing of knowledge, exchanging ideas, and creating connections and opportunities among community members. These will be achieved through members' engagement and the growth of a collaborative and dynamic research community.
Moreover, it will lead to:
1. Accessibility to advanced research done in the field, including theory and case studies, and sharing of existing knowledge (including research consultations, methodological approaches, research specialties, conferences, panels, articles, and analysis)
2. Establishing a global research community and networking. Community activities will foster connections between researchers and provide a vibrant network for researchers at different career stages. The community will encourage joint submissions to research calls, panels, and joint conferences.
3. As part of the innovative ecosystem (provided and hosted by 'DiploMarket' platform), it will allow access to professionals and experts through joint research initiatives and online meetings.
4. Within the community, research tools will be accessed and developed, including initial conceptualization tools, through a joint documentation project and database formulation, for the use of the community members in publications, follow-up research, or other necessities.
