CFP: Culture and Communication in Negotiation and Conflict Management

Publication OpportunitiesSpecial Issue Call for Papers: Culture and Communication in Negotiation and Conflict Management, for Negotiation and Conflict Management Research. Submission Deadline: January 15, 2018. Special Issue Editor: Wendi Adair, University of Waterloo.

Culture is defined broadly as a social group with shared values and norms that are reinforced and perpetuated through the group’s institutions. Culture defined by national borders is one conceptualization; culture defined by gender, religion, lifestyles, careers, and generations are also predictors of what, how, and when someone communicates, as well as interprets, and responds. What refers to communication content: meaning the speaker conveys and meaning the listener interprets. How refers to linguistic style, nonverbal cues, context dependence, and communication medium. When refers to temporal patterns such as timing, pacing, and temporal horizons.

We invite empirical and conceptual submissions addressing culture and communication in diverse negotiation and conflict management contexts including topics such as:
–     Case studies or comparative culture analyses of negotiators’ or mediators’ communication repertoires in understudied populations (e.g., Africa, South America, religious groups);
–   Communication adjustment/adaptation, cultural interpreters, and role of language in cross-cultural negotiation and conflict resolution;
–       Qualitative analyses of linguistic or communication tools used to aid conflict resolution and negotiation in distinct cultural populations (e.g., metaphor in high context cultures, sharing circles, story-telling in hierarchical cultures);
–       Content analyses of public accounts of negotiation or conflict resolution (e.g., media coverage of land dispute, international trade, and political negotiations across culture);
–       Identification, interpretation, and management of miscommunication and misinterpretation in cross-cultural negotiation or dispute resolution;
–     Conflict management and negotiation in close relationships across cultures.

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.
