Dialogic Matters: Social and Material Challenges for Dialogue in the 21st Century
The 2019 International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) conference will be held from July 24-27, 2019, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA). The partners in the organization of this event are the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the International Association for Dialogue Analysis. The sponsoring offices include the Communication Department, College of Arts and Humanities, and Provost Office of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, and the Graduate School, College of Letters and Science, and Department of Communication at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
In interrogating 'dialogic matters,' this conference especially (but not exclusively) invites papers that explore the various interconnections of dialogue, matter, matters of concern, and materiality. What are the specific social and material conditions which actually permit or facilitate dialogue? The conference will explore issues including the relevance and potential impact of various forms of dialogue on agency and action, the role of dialogue in addressing societal (Noy, 2015), political (Săftoiu, Neagu & Măda, 2015), cultural (Grein & Weigand, 2007), medical (Fatigante et al., 2016), environmental (Castor, 2018), scientific (Livnat, 2012) and technological (Caronia, 2015) 'matters of concern'. Papers could also discuss dialogue and its implications for constructing and de-constructing 'others', dialogue and the posthuman turn, crises in and about dialogue, and dialogue in the processes of learning, and of social and personal transformation.
