CFP IADA 2022: Dialogue in a Globalised and Digital World (Russia & Online)

ConferencesCall for papers: Dialogue in a Globalised and Digital World: Retrospective and Prospective Studies, July 12-14, 2022, RUDN University, Moscow, Russia (Hybrid format). Deadline: March 1, 2022.

The twenty-first century opened us up to a new reality. New smart, digital technologies raised communication opportunities to new heights. One does not even need a computer to participate from the eastern part of the world in a dialogue with someone who is in the west part of the globe. Smartphone is enough. Such worldwide famous programs as MS Teams and Zoom serve many communication needs, including gesture and mimics, as one can both hear and see our interlocutors.

Popular and political discourse is invested in globalization. As we nearly got used to the term ‘globalized world’, this world starts turning back again to national ideals. Integration or disintegration – that is the question?
Covid time is not over. What has it brought to us? Deeper knowledge of how to communicate from a distance or depression and desocialisation? Maybe both. One thing is clear. We cannot change strange and cruel circumstances at once, but we can help people and peoples obtain a new understanding and knowledge of how to survive and make life better through constructive dialogue.

Migration processes captured the globe as well. People of different nations hardly understand each other. Communication barriers based on cultural peculiarities can be brought down. It might be time to work out a migration linguistic policy; a time to ‘break the communication ice’ among the nations.

An interdisciplinary approach to the problem of understanding, friendship and cooperation through constructive dialogue is one more goal to achieve.

All the above mentioned challenges will be the aim of this conference.

CID Poster #7: Social Justice/Social Harmony (reprise)

CID Posters(We are reprising the series of posters, because it has been several years since they were originally created, and they are much too wonderful to let them not be noticed by newcomers to the site!)

This is the next of the posters designed by Linda J. de Wit, then in her role as CID intern. This is the first poster to use one of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue as the source. The content here comes from KC79: Social Cohesion, written by Narine Nora Kerelian & Gizem Arat.

Social Justice/Social HarmonyJust in case anyone wants to cite this poster, the following would be the recommended format:

Center for Intercultural Dialogue. (2017). Social justice/social harmony. CID Posters, 7. Available from:
https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/social-justice-harmony.png

As with other series, CID Posters are available for free on the site; just click on the thumbnail to download a printable PDF. They may be downloaded, printed, and shared as is, without changes, without cost, so long as there is acknowledgment of the source.

As with other series, if you wish to contribute an original contribution, please send an email before starting any work to receive approval, to minimize inadvertent duplication, and to learn about technical requirements. As is the case with other CID Publications, posters should be created initially in English. Given that translations of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue have received so many views, anyone who wishes to translate their own poster into another language (or two) is invited to provide that as well. If you want to volunteer to translate someone else’s poster into a language in which you are fluent, send in a note before starting, to receive approval and to confirm no one else is working on the same one.

Beyond Borders: PHD Scholarships (Germany)

“Studentships“

PHD Scholarships at multiple levels, Borders, Migration, and Knowledge, Beyond Borders, Hamburg, Germany. Deadline: 1 March 2022.

Beyond Borders invites applications from Ph.D. students worldwide studying borders and bordering phenomena in different regions of the world. Both empirical research based on extensive fieldwork and projects centered on theoretical reflection are eligible for support. Innovative and challenging research questions as well as comparative approaches are highly welcome. There are Start-up scholarships, PHD Scholarships, and Dissertation completion scholarships.

The migration of people is intimately connected to the migration of knowledge and culture. However, strong international borders still define what is considered national literature, art, or history and which artists, writers, and thinkers from which parts of the world gain global recognition. We invite project applications that explore how national and international canons are produced and changed. Under what conditions do knowledge and culture circulate easily, and when are they blocked? What powers and interests are served when canons are defined? How do museums, universities, archives, and libraries change when traditional intellectual and cultural power centers are displaced or decentered?

Questions concerning borders, migration, knowledge production and circulation as well as social and cultural transfers across nations are the focus of the current call for applications for Ph.D. scholarships. They encourage applications for projects concentrating on following aspects, although other topics will also be considered: trajectories of migration and mobility of cultural and intellectual production; social and cultural dimensions of borders; cultural borders and their manifestation in arts and cultural production; circulation of ideas and knowledge; the changing understanding of the “national”; transnational and global cultural institutions and canons; decolonizing decoloniality – what is a decentered approach to producing, disseminating, teaching about and acting upon knowledge in more equitable ways.

CFP Middle East Dialogue 2022 (Virtual)

KC68 Social Justice Translated into Turkish

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#68: Social Justice, which Kathryn Sorrells wrote for publication in English in 2015, and which Candost Aydın has now translated into Turkish.

Lists of Key Concepts organized alphabetically by conceptchronologically by publication date and number, and by languages into which they have been translated, are available, as is a page of acknowledgments with the names of all authors, translators, and reviewers.

If you are interested in translating one of the Key Concepts, please contact me for approval first because dozens are currently in process. As always, if there is a concept you think should be written up as one of the Key Concepts, whether in English or any other language, propose it. If you are new to CID, please provide a brief resume. This opportunity is open to masters students and above, on the assumption that some familiarity with academic conventions generally, and discussion of intercultural dialogue specifically, are useful.
