Continuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC#73: Argumentative Dialogue, which which Sara Greco wrote in English for publication in 2015, and which Katalin Egri Ku-Mesu has now translated into Hungarian.
As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download. Lists of Key Concepts organized alphabetically by concept, chronologically 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.

Call for proposals: PeaceCon 2020: Pandemics, Peace and Justice: Shaping What Comes Next, To be held online, December 7-9, 2020. Deadline: September 13, 2020.
In partnership with the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), the Alliance for Peacebuilding is proud to announce the theme for PeaceCon 2020, Pandemics, Peace and Justice: Shaping What Comes Next, taking place virtually, December 7-9. In the midst of a global pandemic, rising global violence, and a national and worldwide reckoning over systemic injustice and racism, PeaceCon 2020 will bring together experts and practitioners to consider the interplay of justice and peacebuilding, and strategies to elevate and integrate peacebuilding in our collective effort to shape a more just, secure and peaceful future in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recognizing the challenges to international travel and large group gatherings this year, PeaceCon 2020 will take place entirely online, from December 7-9, 2020. Peacebuilders from across the world will be invited to share their ideas for interactive sessions, workshops, or other creative online formats, with an emphasis on moving beyond the traditional format of long panel presentations followed by-brief audience question-and-answers. Organizers seek submissions for interactive panels, ignite talks, workshops, and networking sessions with diverse institutional affiliations and speaker backgrounds. Online sessions will be designed to stimulate discussion and audience participation, with opportunities for engagement in the weeks leading up to PeaceCon and in the year to follow.
Call for papers, e-Sociolinguistics Symposium 23: Unsettling Language, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 7–10 June 2021. Deadline for abstracts: 30 September, 2020.
The theme of the conference is Unsettling Language. The contemporary world is an unsettled place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous conflict zones, forced migration, economic imbalances and uncertainties, as well as ideological extremism resulting in (or caused by) unsettling language emanating from powerful people, political organizations, and the media. As a form of social action, this sort of language requires serious, critical consideration, assessment and counter-action. Furthermore, the notion of ‘language’ itself is undergoing a critical reassessment in how it is being theorized. Language is increasingly understood as more than ‘just’ a set of linguistic resources. Its embodied nature, the materiality of its modalities (speech, writing, sign, gesture, touch, silence), interaction with other modalities (sound, music, images, etc.), and with time and space, requires integration of broader contexts of analysis, multimodal data sets, and multidisciplinary approaches. We invite abstracts addressing the conference theme as well as other contributions focusing on current and innovative themes and theoretical challenges.
