In 1965 Ambassador Edmund Gullion, Dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy coined the term “public diplomacy” and declared it worthy of academic study. The Edward R. Murrow Center for Public Diplomacy was established. It is named after a distinguished broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow. The center was created “as a memorial to the man whose distinguished reporting and analysis of world news and imaginative leadership of the USIA set a standard of excellence in the field”.
Since then schools of international affairs, communication, and other academic institutions have offered courses in public diplomacy and public diplomacy related fields. These courses have multiplied at universities in the United States and around the world. Many PDC members teach these courses and conduct research. This Academic Study section is designed with three overarching goals:
1. Provide resources for professors teaching courses in public diplomacy and related fields;
2. Provide access to resources for students of public diplomacy;
3. Showcase the work of PDC members by maintaining a bibliography of books, articles, and academic studies authored by PDC members.
