New PD Magazine Highlights Monumental Public Diplomacy

The student-run Public Diplomacy Magazine has released its new Summer/Fall 2019 issue highlighting "monumental" instances of public diplomacy. 

Outgoing Editor-in-Chief Brooke Adams notes how monuments communicate more than meets the eye: "Whether it is the way we return to headstones in memory of the dead or peruse ruins of ancient civilizations, these monuments to things beyond the physical present serve as road signs for humanity." Beyond physical structures, events and leaders can also carry monumental significance. As such, this issue includes articles focusing on important moments in global policy, examples of consequential leadership around the world, and the international relations implications of physical structures. 

Adams also announced that Managing Editor Jasmine Kolano will succeed her as Editor-in-Chief, writing that Kolano "has been a faithful member of the PD Magazine team for the past year and I am confident she will continue to grow and develop this magazine with excellence."

Public Diplomacy Magazine is a publication of the Society of Public Diplomats (SPD) at the University of Southern California, with support from the USC Center on Public Diplomacy and the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
