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.

CFP The Rhetoric of Otherness

“PublicationCall for Papers: The Rhetoric of Otherness, Special Issue in Rhetoric and Communications Journal. Editors: Paola Giorgis, Ivanka Mavrodieva, & Andrea Valente. Deadline: November 15, 2021.

Rhetoric and Communications Journal is accepting manuscripts for a special issue on The Rhetoric of Otherness that can illustrate different genres, media channels, and platforms dealing with issues of Otherness/Othering as a measure of society’s treatment towards individuals and out-groups in terms of dignity, human rights, justice, and welfare. It invites authors to explore old and new forms of Otherness and Othering in various texts such as literary, journalistic, political speeches, new media, social media, visual texts, and films, by focusing on the role of linguistic, rhetoric, and discourse strategies in the representation, construction or deconstruction of us/them, sameness/difference, etc. The co-editors welcome contributions that are either original research, systematic review, or theoretical articles.

CFP In Other Words: Otherness

“PublicationCall for proposals: In Other Words (IOW), an online dictionary of contextualized keywords that focuses on how words (re)produce different forms of Otherness.

There is a recent increase of online dictionaries. So, what is IOW’s specificity?

  • The first is precisely its focus: how does a specific word, in a specific context, (re)produce Otherness? And how can discriminating narratives be contested, destablized, subverted?
  • The second is its structure: the discussion of the keywords is highly interdisciplinary, critical, and creative, using different elements from different fields – visual arts, literature, videos, media texts, etc.
  • The third is its addresses: the dictionary does not speak to academics only, but it is a resource to be used for free to favor discussions and appropriations in/by different educational and social contexts.
  • The fourth is its co-construction: it is a collaborative, ongoing project that welcomes the participation of scholars, teachers, practitioners, professionals, educators, activists, artists, individuals from different various fields, formations and experiences.

We invite you to have a tour of IOW dictionary. Submissions are welcome and peer-reviewed year round. For further info, please contact the Editorial Board. Looking forward to receiving your proposals!

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.
