NOTE for students: As these are written by faculty members or advanced graduate students, they may be used as resources in academic papers (unless your professor in a particular course tells you otherwise). The citation format in APA for a concept published in English would be:
• Leeds-Hurwitz, W. (2014). Intercultural dialogue. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 1. Available from:

As there are additional 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. Feel free to propose concepts drawn from any language, especially if they expand our ability to discuss an aspect of intercultural dialogue that is not easy to translate into English. If you would like to translate one or more of the key concepts into any language other than English, send an email about that.
