Publications

Key Concepts as the GlobeStarting in 2014, CID has published 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. Key Concepts are available as free PDFs, and have been downloaded dozens, hundreds, or thousands of times, depending on the topic. These are organized in several ways:

  • List of key concepts available in English, arranged alphabetically by concept.
  • List of key concepts available in English, arranged by publication number and date.
  • List of concepts available in translation, arranged alphabetically by language, and then by concept in that language.
  • Authors and translators are acknowledged on the concepts they write or translate; authors, translators, and translation reviewers are listed on this page of acknowledgments.

Constructing ICD #1

Constructing Intercultural Dialogues started in February 2017 as a series of case studies. The goal is to provide concrete examples of how actual people have managed to organize and hold intercultural dialogues, so that others may be inspired to do the same.

  • List of case studies available in English, arranged by publication number and date.
  • Authors and translators are acknowledged on the case studies they write or translate; authors, translators, and translation reviewers are listed on this page of acknowledgments.

Intercultural communication/ competence/ dialogue

CID Posters started in June 2017. Academics typically write a lot of words, and don’t worry much about how they are displayed, on the assumption that ideas stand on their own merits. One advantage in having a website is the ability to integrate images with words, and thus to change the ways in which words are shown and shared. This is important because research shows that images are shared far more often than just words. We’ve been delighted to learn that faculty members in multiple countries have printed out these posters and put them up on doors and bulletin boards!

  • List of posters, arranged by date of publication.
  • Designers are credited on the individual posts introducing each poster. The sources of the quotes used are credited on the posters themselves.

    In DialogueIn Dialogue: CID Occasional Papers is a new series started in August 2020. 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.


As there are additional contributions to any of these publications that you would like to prepare (or translate, for the text-based series), send an email to CID Director and publications editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz.

There are many, many relevant publications by others, of course. As we notice these, they are added to the list of Readings in ICD posted to this website. If you would like to nominate some of your own publications, or those you are reading, to be added to the list, send an email. For a full list of other CID activities, see What we do.
