Jennifer Hubbert Appointed CPD Research Fellow
November 05, 2018
It is our pleasure to share the news that the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) has appointed Dr. Jennifer Hubbert, Associate Professor and Department Chair of Sociology/Anthropology, as a CPD Research Fellow for 2018-2020. Her proposed project, “Recalling Public Diplomacy: Sister Cities and the Shifting Landscapes of International Relations”, will investigate the growing practice of public diplomacy by examining the Sister Cities International program. More specifically, Dr. Hubbert seeks to analyze Sister Cities’ diverse forms of diplomacy—including global youth leadership summits, trade missions, educational exchanges, and infrastructure development—for what they reveal about the broader differences that this level of diplomacy entails.
