The public discussion of foreign policy and the preservation of ‘state secrets’ became important factors in politics during the early modern period. This one-day conference aims to examine the politics of news, diplomacy and the Arcana imperii c. 1485-1714. Building on recent work on news, rumour and the ‘public sphere’, it aims to explore the relationship between information, counsel, foreign policy and domestic politics and how these things changed over time.

Themes include:

·         Foreign policy and its relationship with domestic politics.

·         The circulation of news and rumour relating to foreign affairs.

·         State secrets, censorship and propaganda.

·         Diplomacy, intelligence-gathering and spying.

·         Counsel, decision-making and the formation of foreign policy.

·         The interplay of dynastic politics, religion, warfare and trade in foreign policy.

·         Travel writing and attitudes towards foreigners.
