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.

Postdoctoral fellow-University of Denver

Postdoctoral Lecturer, University of Denver

The Department of Communication Studies grants the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. The graduate program is focused on three areas of inquiry: Culture and Communication, Interpersonal and Family Communication, and Rhetoric and Communication Ethics. The area of Culture and Communication investigates the communicative constitution and intersection of difference in its various codifications as culture, race, class, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexual orientation. Its vision is to promote an ethic of inclusivity, racial and social justice, reciprocity, and mutual transformation in the encounter of difference. Courses reflect this emphasis, focusing on the social and performative construction of identity, the politics of representation, performances of affect, identity, and community and vernacular and embodied rhetorics, all informed by, critical, feminist and queer perspectives on cultural communication.

Given faculty research and teaching foci we are particularly interested in applicants who have teaching and research interests in Communication, transnationalism, diaspora, and/or migration. Scholars with research and teaching foci in the areas of African diaspora studies, citizenship studies, and diaspora studies, and/or queer diaspora studies are particularly welcome.
