Hacettepe University, Centre for British Literary and Cultural Studies Presents The Making of Anglo-Ottoman Diplomacy Through Correspondence

The interaction between diplomacy and literature functions in various ways. Diplomacy does not merely appear in non-fictional and fictional literature as thematic material, but also shapes form, while literature, in search of aesthetic representation, depicts diplomatic activity. This seminar aims to discuss diplomacy as a practice of communication and semiotic exchange and the representation of diplomatic activities in literature in the sixteenth century during Queen Elizabeth’s and Sultan Murad III’s reigns. Gifts and letters exchanged in abundance as part of the diplomacy between the Ottoman Empire and the English sovereignty in the sixteenth century provide an invaluable evaluation of diplomatic poetics in early modern literary studies and in redefining Europe.
