KC4: Coordinated Management of Meaning Translated into Arabic

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing translations of Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting KC4: Coordinated Management of Meaning, which Robyn Penman wrote and first published in English in 2014, which Mohammed Guamguami has now translated into Arabic.

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.

KC4 CMM_ArabicPenman, R. (2021). Coordinated Management of Meaning [Arabic]. (M. Guamguami, Trans). Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 4. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2021/07/kc4-cmm_arabic.pdf

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.

Grant Douglas Profile


Grant Douglas is co-director, ICIE (IÉSEG Center for Intercultural Engagement), Lille, France.

Grant Douglas

Grant has been involved in international education and training in different capacities since 1991. Originally from Newcastle- Upon-Tyne in the North-East of England, Grant is a long-term expatriate who has lived and worked in France for over 30 years. He was in charge of the International Relations Service of different higher education institutes for 17 years. Since 2000, Grant has focused on the conception, organization and implementation of undergraduate, post-graduate and professional development study and training programmes with an international and intercultural dimension.

Grant is currently in charge of developing the intercultural communication/diversity management track at IÉSEG School of Management. He is vice-president of SIETAR France (Society for Intercultural Training, Education and Research), and a council member of IACCM (International Association of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management). Grant is also a long-standing member of the Global Community Dialogue on Leadership, Diversity and Change (GCD).

In recent years Grant’s focus has moved more from a purely international/intercultural perspective to a more broadly diversity and inclusion perspective which is reflected in his participation in projects aimed at fostering more diversity and inclusion in higher education institutes and in making them zero tolerant of physical and verbal harassment. He is currently involved in an international research project examining the International Student Experience (ISE) as well as two internal IÉSEG projects designed to increase student engagement and inclusion and eradicate verbal and physical harassment. When he is not at work, Grant likes to spend time cultivating his vegetable patch, listening to music, and following his local soccer team, LOSC.
