JDS & Dialogue Theory Workshop Call for Papers

Recently, we announced the launch of the new academic publication, the Journal of Dialogue Studies from the Dialogue Society, and we wanted to let our members know that the JDS is accepting submissions for the next publication of the journal. The call for submissions comes along with the announcement of an academic workshop on “dialogue thinkers” coming up next year. You can read the basics of both calls below, or find more the full announcements here for the journal and here for the workshop.

JDS_bigJournal of Dialogue Studies Call for Papers

JDS Spring 2014, Vol 2, No 1, ‘Critiquing Dialogue Theories’

Submissions deadline: February 7th, 2014

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. For more information, please click here.

Please send any queries to the Editorial Team via journal@dialoguesociety.org.

Academic Workshop Call for Papers: Dialogue Theories, Volume II

New deadline for submission of abstracts: 17:00 UK time on January 23rd, 2014

The workshop will be held on  June 26th and 27th, 2014.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). For further information and a preview, please see www.dialoguesociety.org/publications/academia/875-dialogue-theories.html.
