IADA 2019 invites papers that explore the various interconnections of dialogue, matter, matters of concern, and materiality. Proposals from any academic discipline addressing questions related to dialogue and dialogue studies are welcome. Proposals may also address (but are not limited to) any of the following sub-themes:

  • Discussing and/or applying descriptive methods to dialogue, e.g. conversation analysis, linguistic analysis, critical theory, ethnography, etc, in different contexts: pedagogical, mediation purposes, etc.

  • Relational ontology: interactions, relationality and materiality; human, machine, and technology interactions; technologies of dialogue

  • Dialogue and ‘othering’: the role of dialogue in constituting self, other, and group identity/ies.

  • Dialogue and power in constituting marginalized groups, or as a mechanism to hinder social transformation

  • Case studies permitting the discussion of material and social conditions enabling or preventing dialogue

  • Materiality, space and place: nature and posthuman dialogue; the communicative constitution of geographies; interaction and environmental matters; exploring the terrain and potentials of ‘smart cities’

  • Dialogue in and about crisis: challenges in dialogue; dialogue and (un)natural disasters; dialogue in mediating crises and conflicts

  • Dialogue, learning, and transformation: dialogue and its role in transformations of identity and relationship; dialogue and learning in and out of educational institutions; transformative approaches in education

ConferencesCall for Papers: Dialogue and Becoming: Technologies, Agencies, and Ways of Relating. International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) Conference. Chinese Culture University, Taipei, TAIWAN. Sept. 25–28, 2018. DeadlineApril 16th, 2018.

We now live in an environment where many of our dialogues and interactions are facilitated, actualized, virtualized, augmented, or completed by and through communication technologies and online platforms. Humans go online not only to interact with other human beings, but also to interact with information and data. In many contexts, we now achieve dialogical communication by integrating technologies and information, using or creatively appropriating various platforms (e.g. Castells, 2007; Dahlberg, 2007; Fuchs & Obrist, 2010, Papacharissi, 2015).

CFP International Association for Dialogue Analysis 2017 (Italy)

Dialogue, interaction and culture: Multidisciplinary perspectives on language use in everyday life
International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) Conference
Bologna, Italy, 11-14 October 2017

The 2017 International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) conference will be held from October 11-14, 2017 at the University of Bologna (Department of Education) and is sponsored by the School of Psychology and Education, the FAM (Fondazione Alma Mater), and the International Association for Dialogue Analysis.

The conference focuses on the role of dialogue or interaction in displaying, maintaining, creating yet also defying the crucial dimensions of the world we live in. This process is particularly at play – although not necessarily noticed – in everyday life. Rather than a context, this phenomenological notion indicates the obvious, routine, quasi-natural quality of most human practices taking place in ordinary as well as institutional contexts. Quoting a well-known formula by John Heritage (1984) yet applying it beyond the micro-level of the hic et nunc discursive environment, we propose to conceive dialogue as “context shaped and context renewing”. Overcoming the “interactional reductionism” (Levinson, 2005) implied in focusing solely on the emergent properties of language use, as well as any simplistic return to sociocultural, psychological an even material determinism, dialogue and interaction are seen as an “intermediate variable” (Ibidem) or faits d’interface (Descola, 2016) connecting the micro-order of everyday life and the macro-order of shared culture and social structure. As Rommetveit put it forty years ago, dialogue is “the skeleton” or “the architecture of intersubjectivity” (1976).

The conference welcomes empirical and methodological papers from different disciplinary perspectives that focus on dialogue and interaction as carriers of, and tools for culture, social organization, moral horizons, identities and change. Theoretical papers are more than welcome insofar as they provide some empirical illustration of the paper’s theoretical point(s).

The conference includes but it is not limited to, the following sub themes:
*   Dialogue and Health (e.g. dialogue as therapy; dialogue in clinical settings; medical interaction; dialogue in multilingual-multicultural healthcare contexts; dialogue in social work).
*   Dialogue, Justice and Social Change (e.g. dialogue in policing including interrogations, citizen calls; criminal, civil and administrative law; transidioma and asylum; intercultural institutional talk; social conflicts and Alternative Dispute Resolution practices; family and social mediation; restorative justice).
*   Dialogue and Materiality (e.g. inter-objectivity; Actor-Network-Theory; things as dialogic entities; humans and non-humans interaction; socio-semiotics; dialogue and technologically saturated environment; the object’s affordances and the user’s agenda).
*   Dialogue and Organization (e.g. dialogue as an organizing phenomenon; leadership and dialogue; expert-novice interaction; authority and power in organizational communication).
*   Dialogue, Socialization and Education (e.g. dialogue in friendship and peer culture; family everyday talk; language socialization; classroom talk; dialogue in everyday school-life; assessment as a dialogic practice; teachers-parents conference; L2 learning activities; coaching and training).
*   Dialogue, Text and Language (e.g. dialogue as text; dialogue in literary texts, CMC and audiovisual texts; text and reader dialogue; textual representations of dialogues; dialogue in advertising, advertising as dialogue; dialogue in propaganda and political speech; grammar, lexicon and cultural norms in everyday talk).

Deadline: 30 November 2016.

SUBMISSION
We invite extended abstracts (500 to 700 words) or full papers of a maximum of 30 pages, including references. Any citation style is permitted (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago). Submission opens on June 30th 2016, and closes on November 30th 2016 at 23:59 local time in Italy. Notification of acceptance in March 2017.

CFP IADA: Anthropologies of Dialogue (France) 2015

ANTHROPOLOGIES OF DIALOGUE
Nancy, August 27-29, 2015
25th anniversary of the International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA)

Since the Conference is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA), this event’s theme will be the anthropologies of dialogue. According to Kant, anthropology refers to the study of the human beings in their essence and progress. Given the omnipresence and omnitemporality of dialogue, we can claim that it constitutes one of the principal characteristics of humanity, i.e., what makes human beings who they are. Thus, the study of dialogue is simultaneously concerned with the humanities, the social sciences and the natural sciences. The 25th anniversary of IADA is an excellent opportunity to examine the progress made in our knowledge of dialogue and this will be the subject of the plenary conferences.

The conference will be organized as follows: plenary conferences will focus on the main  theme of dialogue, while workshops and poster sessions will offer the opportunity to discuss all the aspects, properties and applications of this knowledge. Workshops will host panels and lectures devoted to the most recent fields of social practices, such as tele-medicine, dialogical therapeutic tele-interviews, robotic care for the elderly, and dialogue in its various contexts: education, politics, mental or somatic health care, labor, legal, etc.

The conference language is English.

CALL FOR PAPERS

CFP (Inter)faces of Dialogue 2014 Romania

(Inter)faces of Dialogue: Constructing Identity through Language Use

5 – 8 June 2014
Transilvania University of Braşov (Romania)
International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) Workshop

The way people talk, dress or behave are types of social codes, important ways of displaying who we are; in other words, they indicate our social identity. Each individual wants to build (him)herself a certain identity. There are multiple identities – some of them are wanted, while some others are unwanted – and a speaker faces a dilemma to choose the best identity for a certain situation and this “browsing” of identities may be achieved through dialogue. In approaching the topic of this workshop, we start from the premise that humans are dialogic beings, users and learners of language in various contexts. While acting and reacting in ever-changing environments (interpersonal or institutional), people try “to achieve more or less effectively certain purposes in dialogic interaction” (Weigand 2008: 3).

The academic interest for social relationships and the way they are organized in dialogues can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century, once Malinowski first suggested in 1923 that humans share “phatic communion”. Scholars in interpersonal communication, social psychology and sociology have ever since highlighted that the concept of ‘identity’ is important for studying the organization of social life.

Individuals use language to construct an identity (or a set of identities) for themselves, while communities use language as a means of identifying their members and of establishing boundaries. Once an individual adheres to a group or a community of practice, (s)he will adopt (and sometimes adapt) the existing linguistic conventions of that group.

The workshop aims at looking the ways in which identity is created and reflected in dialogic action games. We are particularly interested in studying the (inter)faces of dialogue from different perspectives and in different – European and non European – languages. The workshop aims to be interdisciplinary and therefore welcomes proposals from scholars from different areas.

We welcome individual paper presentations, panels and posters that explore topics in the following areas, but are not limited to:
*Construction of personal and group identity
*Names and naming practices
*Identity construction and humour
*Identity and representation
*Linguistic variation and the construction of identity
*Construction of  cultural identity in minority languages
*Identity construction and power
*Construction of identity in computer-mediated communication
*Construction of identity through mass-media

Deadline
The abstract submission deadline (including panel proposals) is January 25, 2014 (Extended) and the notification of acceptance will be received by January 20, 2014 (for submissions sent before 15 december 2013).

For more information or to submit your abstract, please contact the organizing committee at this email address or visit the workshop website.
