The Center for Intercultural Dialogue is starting a new publication series, In Dialogue: CID Occasional Papers. The goal is to provide a place for longer discussions than are possible in any of the other publication series. There will likely be only one or two occasional papers published in any given year.
OP1, to be published next week, provides a broad overview of intercultural dialogue as it is studied and practiced today, summarizing a wide range of publications in a single place, in order that others can easily use this resource to learn what sources will be most relevant to their own needs, as well as showing what work already has been completed, and pointing out what remains to be done.
In Dialogue: CID Occasional Papers will be a good place to publish analyses of actual, naturally occurring intercultural dialogue, since this is what is most often missing from the literature. If you are interested in publishing something of your own in this series, contact the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz.
As with other series, the Occasional Papers will be made available for free on the site as printable PDFs. They may be downloaded, printed, and shared as is, without changes, without cost, so long as there is acknowledgment of the source.
My thanks to Donal Carbaugh, former CID Board Member, for suggesting the series title, and to Linda de Wit, former CID intern now serving as graphic design consultant, for creating the layout and design of the new series.
