The dangers of negotiating with Rome: treaties, the law of nations and contested diplomacy space in the ancient Mediterranean

Organizers: UVic Graduate Student Law & Society Research Group

Series: Treaty making series

Title: The dangers of negotiating with Rome: treaties, the law of nations and contested diplomacy space in the ancient Mediterranean

Presenter: Professor Hannah Cornwell, DPhil Oxon. (University of Birmingham)

Description: Diplomacy is an inherently spatial practice, centred around the negotiation of identities, boundaries and subjectivities within space. It is also a form of human action that creates,produces and constructs social relations. Starting from a consideration of treaties (foedera) as a means of defining relations between states, this presentation examines ideas of contested spaces ofdiplomacy in relation to the ancient Roman state. In constructing an understanding of diplomatic culture in the Roman world, it also emphasises how, due to a complex network of interstate andinterpersonal relations, acts of diplomacy are always precarious.
