DIALOGUE STUDIES – CALLS FOR PAPERS

Journal of Dialogue Studies – JDS Spring 2014, Vol 2, No 1, ‘Critiquing Dialogue Theories’

Submissions deadline: 7th February 2014

The Journal of Dialogue Studies is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal published twice a year. It seeks to bring together a body of original scholarship on the theory and practice of dialogue for appraisal and discussion, and to help to establish Dialogue Studies as a distinct academic field. It publishes conceptual, research and/or case-based works on dialogue theory and practice, and papers that discuss wider social, cultural or political issues as these relate to the practice and evaluation of dialogue.
The second issue, to be published in April 2014, will have a particular focus on the critical examination of key dialogue theories. The Editors would particularly like to invite papers which address critical/evaluative questions such as the following:
–          Which dialogue theories are/have been most influential in practice?
–          Do dialogue theories make sense in relation to relevant bodies of research and established theories?
–          Do dialogue theories sufficiently take account of power imbalances?
–          How far are dialogue theories relevant/useful to dialogue in practice?

In addition to papers responding to the theme of ‘critiquing dialogue theories’, the Editors will also consider any paper within the general remit of the Journal, including those exploring the parameters, viability and usefulness of Dialogue Studies as an academic field, as requested in the call for papers for Volume 1, Number 1. Please see the call for papers for Volume 1, Number 1 here:http://www.dialoguesociety.org/publications/academia/829-journal-of-dialogue-studies.html

Academic Editor: Prof Paul Weller, Derby University
For Editorial Team and Board please see the Dialogue Society website.
The Journal of Dialogue Studies is published by the Institute for Dialogue Studies, a subsidiary body of registered charity the Dialogue Society.
For submission guidelines and further information please seehttp://www.dialoguesociety.org/publications/academia/944-journal-of-dialogue-studies-vol-2-no-1.html

Please send any queries to the Editorial Team via journal@dialoguesociety.org.
An A4 poster to print/share with contacts is available here:http://www.dialoguesociety.org/newsletter/poster/Journal-Vol2No1-Poster.pdf

Academic Workshop Call for Papers: Dialogue Theories, Volume II
New deadline for submission of abstracts: 17:00 UK time on 23rd January 2014.
The workshop will be held on 26th and 27th June 2014.
NB abstracts must follow the specific requirements given on the webpage, which also gives details of the submission procedure, submission schedule, selection criteria and arrangements for the workshop:
http://www.dialoguesociety.org/forthcoming/915-academic-workshop-and-book-chapter-call-for-papers-dialogue-theories-volume-ii.html

The Dialogue Society invites papers from scholars and practitioners of dialogue, ultimately to be published as a companion volume to Dialogue Theories, published earlier this year. The book, by Frances Sleap and Dr Omer Sener and edited by Professor Paul Weller, aims to advance theoretical and practical engagement with dialogue by introducing the work of ten individuals who have made significant and insightful contributions to thought in this area. The thinkers selected come from diverse fields, from religious studies and interfaith dialogue, through philosophy and social theory, to communication studies, public opinion analysis and even quantum physics. For further information and a preview, please see http://www.dialoguesociety.org/publications/academia/875-dialogue-theories.html
The Dialogue Society is inviting papers introducing a ‘dialogue thinker’ of the author’s choice. The thinker may come from any field. He/she must have made a significant contribution to ideas about dialogue, and these ideas must be to some extent transferable to fields beyond the thinker’s own specialism. Please note that the workshop and the resulting book are not intended to be restricted to interfaith dialogue.
A two day workshop held at the Dialogue Society will allow people to exchange ideas on their chosen thinkers and to dialogically refine their papers prior to their publication as chapters in Dialogue Theories, volume II (publication date: autumn 2014). The editors for the book will be the editor and authors of the first volume (Paul Weller, Omer Sener and Frances Sleap).
