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.

UNAOC: Fellowships for Emerging Leaders 2022


Fellowships for emerging leaders, United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. Deadline: 5 June 2022.

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is pleased to launch the Call for Applications for the 2022 edition of its Fellowship Programme. The Call is open to participants between 25 to 35 years old, from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and North America, with a strong interest in intercultural exchanges and intercultural cooperation to challenge and deconstruct hate speech and stereotypes.

The theme of the Fellowship 2022 is “Countering discrimination and racism: the nexus to building pluralistic and diverse societies”. The choice of the theme stems from UNAOC’s core mandate of tackling racism and discrimination and finding ways to addressing root causes of polarization within and between societies. Intercultural dialogue represents an important tool to prevent conflict and build social cohesion, peace and stability. As a mainstay of UNAOC’s work, intercultural dialogue will remain a central focus of the Fellowship agenda with visits and activities aiming at providing participants with crucial comprehension tools to help them understand the plurality and the complexity of their surroundings, and to get an extensive grasp of their host country’s culture, politics, society, religion, media and more.

To be selected, candidates must be able to present professional achievements related to the theme. The Call will lead to the selection of a group of 8 young leaders from Europe, North-America (EUNA) and a group of 8 young leaders from the Middle East and North-Africa (MENA) who will travel together to selected countries in both regions for two weeks. The goal of the Fellowship is to challenge perceptions and deconstruct stereotypes by providing participants with first hand exposure to cultural diversity. In every country they visit, UNAOC Fellows will interact with a wide range of local stakeholders. Together, they will explore opportunities for intercultural collaboration and exchange ideas and good practices on building pluralistic and diverse societies as a foundation for sustainable peace.



CFP Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management


Call for Papers: The Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management.
Deadline: 15 July 2022

Negotiation and Conflict Management Research (NCMR) is preparing a special Issue on The Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management. The special issue editor will be Bing Han, at the University of South Carolina at Aiken. Spiritual experiences have profound influences on individual lives. A nation’s spiritual and religious traditions have significant political, psychological and social implications for its people. Conflicts can occur between individuals or groups with different faith and spiritual traditions, between individuals with and those without adherence to a faith, and between nations with different spiritual traditions and history. Within each spiritual tradition, prominent texts and figures lead the search for truth and for solutions to human problems including peace and conflict. Therefore, the role of faith and spirituality in negotiation and conflict management theory and practice merits further examination. In this special issue, negotiation and conflict researchers and practitioners should ask the question: How does the rich history and culture of a spiritual tradition contribute to negotiation and conflict management theory and practice?

The call for papers is focused on the important contributions of faith and spirituality to the field of negotiation and conflict management. Priorities will be given to manuscripts that create, test, or expand theory in negotiation and conflict management research. The editor will welcome thought-provoking manuscripts including empirical and theoretical original research employing various methodologies.

NOTE: As of January 2021, NCMR has transitioned from the Wiley Online Library to become an Open Access and Open Science journal hosted by the Carnegie Mellon University Library Publishing Service.

CFP Researching Digital Interculturality Co-operatively (Germany & Hybrid)

ConferencesCall for papers: Lifewide Learning: Transformations and New Connections in Postdigital Societies, Researching Digital Interculturality Co-0peratively (ReDICo), University of Jena, Germany and Hybrid, 29 June-1 July, 2022. NOTE: Deadline for presentation has passed, but program is available on their website, if you wish to attend.

Digitalization has rapidly transformed the planet. Technological d developments continuously open up a myriad of new possibilities in daily human experience. Indeed, the Internet has penetrated material reality to such an extent that it is now, often, impossible in many contexts to disentangle the material from the virtual. In this “postdigital” (Cramer2014; Knox2019) scenario, the digital and the material intertwine and the intersubjectivity of lifeworlds develop, thus, relatively freely in a hybrid space. The encounter with ‘newness’ becomes indeed potentially accessible at the touch of a button 24/7, and learning becomes a lifewide experience, covering a myriad of new digital and potentially global contexts, beyond the local. New connections with other people and their artifacts are continuously occurring. These new connections foster learning processes which lead to personal and cultural transformations; the ground upon which new connections develop.

In this conference organizers aim to share theoretical models; results of empirical research developed in a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields; as well as best practices which allow us to understand how lifewide learning unfolds in postdigital societies, and indeed what its implications may be. Contributions may be in English or German.

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.
