Studies on Culture and Diplomacy –

Projects at Don Juan Archiv Wien: OTTOMANIA, DIPLOMATICA, BRASILIENSIA

Don Juan Archiv Wien is a research institute in Vienna dedicated to theatre history and cultural history, conducting scholarly and cultural projects mainly concerned with the global history of theatre. Since 2008 Don Juan Archiv has undertaken a long-lasting project of conference and publication series, OTTOMANIA, which is centralized on the cultural transfers between the Ottoman Empire and Europe with a focus on the performing arts. The project OTTOMANIA, with the cooperations established within, and its results have led to the launching of a new conference and publication series in 2016, DIPLOMATICA: mainly dedicated to the interrelations of culture and diplomacy, this series focuses on the exploration of the cultural aspects of diplomacy up to the 19th century in the European and Ottoman contexts. The first three editions of the series DIPLOMATICA are currently in preparation: Culture and Diplomacy, Gender and Diplomacy and Performing Diplomacy in the Early Modern World.

A new third series, BRASILIENSIA, focuses on the cultural transfers between Europe and Latin America. The first volume is dedicated to the first performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni outside of Europe in Rio de Janeiro in 1821, and its cultural-political context.
These projects and their manifold aspects might invite colleagues working in the field of culture and diplomacy for future cooperation.
