Literature and Cultural Diplomacy: An Essay on Cultural Readings

litteratureBy Cristina-Elena Pestrea, Institute for Cultural Diplomacy

The “Literature and Cultural Diplomacy: An Essay on Cultural Readings” paper was presented by Daniel Sip, during the The Language of Art & Music Conference organized by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, in August 2011 and tries to examining literature as a tool of cultural diplomacy.

“From a theoretical perspective, literature can work for cultural diplomacy as it can allow  readers to imagine foreign countries or foreign cultures; characterizations of protagonists can  invite us to empathize with people we would usually never meet or even fear, and even  fictitious societies can potentially make us understand the workings of distant cultures. In  reality, however, this potential of literature is complicated due to a variety of factors.”
