General information

This research-based summer school has a two-fold ambition of introducing and involving students in:

(1) the emerging literature and practice on digital technologies and diplomacy (2) the world of research through a concrete book project, resulting from my ERC project DIPLOFACE.

Ad 1) Digital technologies appear to dramatically change how we make war and peace, how we consume, migrate, identify, and relate. Across digital infrastructures and social media platforms, boundaries between private and public, local and global are blurred, while algorithms shape what becomes visible and possible in world politics. Yet, there is little clarity about what we mean by ‘the digital’ and how we understand digitalization as a productive force in international relations. This summer school explores how diplomacy performed with and through digital devices and technologies.

Ad 2) The course is also a master class, allowing students to go under the hood of academia and invite them into the research lab. We will discuss and experience what it means to publish and how we go from observations to analysis and how students themselves might contribute to research.


Please note that the summer courses are non-residential. Participants are responsible for finding and funding accommodation during their stay in Copenhagen.

You can use different online portals to search for accommodation, such as:
