Milton Wolf Seminar

The annual Milton Wolf Seminar takes place in Vienna, Austria at the Diplomatic Academy, Vienna.  Each year, Seminar panelists and participants explore a theme related to contemporary issues in media and diplomacy—both broadly defined. Since 2010, the Seminar has been jointly organized by the Center for Global Communication Studies (CGCS) at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, the American Austrian Foundation (AAF), and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna (DA).

The organizers envision the Milton Wolf seminar as a meeting place for media practitioners, diplomats, academics, and students to share their perspectives, formulate new ideas, and identify areas where further research is needed. While the seminar incorporates various speakers and panels, it is designed as a two-day continuing conversation in which all participants are encouraged to openly engage in dialogue and explore potential synergies and future collaborations. In order to encourage an open exchange of ideas, seminar attendance is limited only to invited participants and selected students.

Scholarships for highly motivated students wishing to attend the seminar are available through the Milton Wolf Emerging Scholar Program.  Information about previous and upcoming Seminars is available below and on our Facebook Page.
