[Webinar] From clay to digital tablets: What can we learn from the ancient diplomacy?

05 March 2014 -

Online

Event description

Diplo's advanced webinar on evolution of diplomacy and technology will focus on the Ancient World. We will start with the emergence of writing, one of the most important communication technologies in the history of mankind. 

Writing triggered a more sophisticated way of communication both within and between ancient societies.

During this webinar, we will navigate through the rich diplomatic heritage of Babylon, Sumeria, Egypt, the Hittite Empire, India, Persia, and China. In this journey through time we will follow developments from clay to digital tablets and search for insights that should help us understand the future of e-diplomacy.
