Recently, more people have been asking how to “join” CID. As there is no membership fee, this turns into a question about how to join the CID community. More details are provided on the What We Do page, but here’s a brief summary.
To start, learn about the group; read About CID, What is CID?, CID People, What we do, skim through the CID mission, history, and/or read our brochure, FAQ, or Wikipedia entry.
Then, see how the group can be useful to you, and how you can participate in the group. Look over the publications to see if you want to use some of what’s here, or notice a gap where you can contribute something new. If you’re fluent in a language other than English, and want to translate any of the concepts, case studies, or posters, or if you’re able to review translations by others, send an email. Once you contribute something, you earn a profile on the site, which helps others learn about you and your interests. If you’re a student (up to and including doctoral level), submit a video to the CID Video Competition. If you’re faculty, tell your students about the competition.
If this looks like a helpful organization for you, sign up through WordPress directly (through your own WP site if you have one, or through email – top right of page on a computer screen, bottom on a smart phone) or subscribe using social media platform you visit most: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or YouTube. Any of these ensures you will learn when a new post appears; none of them adds you to a listserve (there isn’t one). None of your information is shared with any other organization.

With 250 million international migrants, and 750 million internal migrants, 1 in 7 people in the world now is a migrant (MigApp Data Sheet, 2017). The International Organization for Migration (IOM, the UN migration agency) has developed MigApp to provide a platform for migrants to use in sharing their experiences, as well as to access verified and accurate information. Migrants also gain a translation tool to use with healthcare professionals and a low-cost way to transfer money (necessary because international migrants from developing countries send home over USD$600 billion annually.). Governments gain a platform to use in directly informing migrants of policies, such as visa regulations. IOM gains a tool to get information about their programs directly to migrants, learn what information is most useful, and what else is needed by the population they serve.
IOM Definition of “Migrant”: “IOM defines a migrant as any person who is moving or has moved across an international border or within a State away from his/her habitual place of residence, regardless of (1) the person’s legal status; (2) whether the movement is voluntary or involuntary; (3) what the causes for the movement are; or (4) what the length of the stay is. IOM concerns itself with migrants and migration‐related issues and, in agreement with relevant States, with migrants who are in need of international migration services.”
The CID video competition is open. The first set of entries have already been submitted and the first judges have agreed to serve. Two weeks remain to the final deadline of May 31, 2018. To submit an entry, click here.
CID is running its first ever video competition, open to students enrolled in any college or university during the 2017-2018 academic year.
To enter, participants must submit a video no longer than 2 minutes that highlights the importance of intercultural dialogue, responding to the question: “What does intercultural dialogue look like?”
One winner will receive a $200 prize. The top entries will be posted to the CID YouTube channel, and be highlighted on the CID website, along with posts describing the creators and highlighting each of their videos, throughout the rest of 2018. Submissions will be evaluated based on originality, clarity, cultural message, effective use of technology, and overall impact. Feel free to work independently or in groups. Get creative, show off your skills and, most importantly, have fun!

The Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland is able to act as academic host to a small number of Visiting Scholars for short periods of research using the RAI Collection (archival, photographic and film material). Research visits must be individually arranged with the RAI.
Prospective Visiting Scholars must provide academic credentials and must arrange their own travel, accommodation and funding; the RAI can provide limited work space and supervision, subject to capacity. A small supervision fee may be charged in appropriate cases. It may be possible to arrange linked access to research facilities elsewhere in London.
Enquiries are particularly welcome from scholars based outside the UK.
Call for Papers and Panels: ETHNOGRAPHY WITH A TWIST, 12–14 February 2019, Jyväskylä, Finland. Deadline: August 31, 2018.
Contemporary political, environmental, and social challenges and crises, rapidly changing societies, development of technology, and encountering of people and cultures produce new environments of research and a need to rethink innovative research methods. The ETHNOGRAPHY WITH A TWIST conference will bring together researchers from diverse disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Organizers welcome papers and panels that explore ethnographic research from a wide range of perspectives that reflect the variety of backgrounds and/or address personal and affective experiences of the researchers. The conference will provide an interdisciplinary arena for lively discussion and exchanges in an inspiring environment that allows ethnographic research to be approached without the weight of tradition and encourages thinking outside the box and the usual comfort zones in our respective fields.
Continuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#33: Moral Conflict, which Kristen L. Cole wrote for publication in English in 2014, and which Anastasia Karakitsou has now translated into Greek.
As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download. Lists of Key Concepts organized chronologically by publication date and number, alphabetically by concept, 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.
Cole, K. L. (2018). Moral conflict (Greek). (A. Karakitsou, trans). Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 33. Retrieved from:
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.
