New CID Series: CID Posters

CID PostersAcademics 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. In recognition of these facts, CID will shortly be starting a new series, CID Posters, which will highlight a particular quote or concept by showing it visually.

The first set of posters is being created by Linda J. de Wit, as part of her internship with CID. However it will also be possible for others to submit posters, just as the regular publication series have been opened to a wide range of contributors. As with other series, please send an email before starting any work to receive approval, to minimize inadvertent duplication, and to learn about technical requirements.

As with other series, posters will be made available for free on the site. They may be downloaded, printed, and shared as is, without changes, without cost, so long as there is acknowledgment of the source.

Presumably most posters will display and then illustrate a quote or concept either about intercultural dialogue or on a closely related topic, although if anyone has other ideas, feel free to send in a note about what you would like to do.

As is the case with other CID Publications, posters should be created initially in English. Given that translations of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue have received so many views, anyone who wishes to translate their own poster into another language (or two) is invited to provide that as well. If you want to volunteer to translate someone else’s poster into a language in which you are fluent, send in a note before starting, to receive approval and to confirm no one else is working on the same one.

Key Concept #62: Diaspora Translated into Polish

Key Concepts in ICDContinuing with translations of the Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, today I am posting  KC62: Diaspora, first published in English in 2015 by Jolanta Drzewiecka, which she has now translated into Polish. As always, all Key Concepts are available as free PDFs; just click on the thumbnail to download. Lists of Key Concepts organized chronologically by publication date and number, alphabetically by concept, and by languages into which they have been translated, are available, as is a page of acknowledgments with the names of all authors, translators, and reviewers.

https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/kc62-diaspora_polish3.pdf

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.
