«Teoria», 2016/1

New Perspectives on Dialogue / Nuove prospettive sul dialogo

Guest Editors: Paolo Biondi, Flavia Monceri

 

 

Call for papers

To be sure, “dialogue” has become one of the core reference notions to address fundamental issues of present time, such as cultural and religious plurality, and more generally to come to understand as well as to practically deal with diversity and differences. This issue of «Teoria» aims at providing a wide selection of current theoretical and practical perspectives on dialogue, by means of collecting contributions coming broadly from the humanities and the social sciences. This would hopefully result in a comprehensive picture of the complex range of definitions, meanings and practices connected to “dialogue”, also giving voice to critical and intersectional positions. But alongside with such picture, the aim of this issue is to let new perspectives become visible, or even emerge, to rethink the notion of dialogue as a whole, as well as to make it more and more “viable” in our complex world.

 

Contributions may be submitted on the following topics (non-exclusive  list):

  • Dialogue theories
  • Dialogue and intercultural communication
  • Dialogue as mediation, dialogue beyond mediation
  • Dialogue as a tool to promote global understanding
  • Dialogue, power and politics
  • Non-western perspectives on dialogue
  • Dialogue and ethics
  • Dialogue, religions, inter-religious dialogue
  • Practices of dialogue, dialogue in practice
  • Dialogue, learning and education

Alongside with a few invited ones, a number of contributions will be selected as a result of this call for papers. Prospective authors should send by June 30, 2015 an abstract in English (max 1000 words), including the title of the paper, name, affiliation and e-mail address of the (corresponding) author to the following e-mail addresses: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the notification of acceptance or refusal will be given by July 31, 2015.

The final draft can be written in Italian, English, French, German or Spanish. It should adopt a non-discriminatory language and must be submitted by October 15, 2015 to undergo the peer-review process. The Editorial board reserves the faculty not to accept the final drafts that do not correspond to submitted abstracts, or do not pass the further selection process to which final drafts will be submitted. Moreover, the Editorial board reserves the faculty to ask the Authors to revise their contributions to fit them to the referees’ evaluations and/or editorial standards. The final notification of acceptance or refusal, as well as of the eventual requests for minor or substantial revisions will be given by December 30, 2015.

The final revised draft, including an English abstract no longer than 150 words, must be submitted by February 15, 2016. Authors are requested to follow the style guidelines of «Teoria», which are available on its website (http://www.rivistateoria.eu).

Copertina_Teoria_2014-1The notion of nature is one of the most recurring and questioned notions in Western thinking. Although its definition was never obvious, nature currently seems in need of a more radical rethinking, also due to the increasing relevance of research fields that compel to its revision. The present issue of «Teoria» aims to let a number of hints emerge for a critical discussion of current definitions and understandings of nature. This second number follows the first one on «Burning Issues».

 

Il concetto di natura è uno dei più ricorrenti e dibattuti del pensiero occidentale. Sebbene la sua definizione non sia stata mai pacifica, attualmente esso sembra aver bisogno di un ripensamento più radicale, dovuto anche alla sempre maggiore rilevanza di ambiti di ricerca che ne impongono una revisione. Il presente fascicolo di «Teoria» si prefigge lo scopo di far emergere una serie di spunti di riflessione per una discussione critica delle definizioni e delle concezioni correnti di natura. Questo secondo numero segue il primo sulle «Questioni aperte».

Copertina_Teoria_2014-1

The notion of nature is one of the most recurring, and perhaps questioned, notions in Western thinking, from «hard» sciences, to philosophy, human and social sciences. Although its definition was never obvious, nature currently seems in need of a more radical rethinking, also due to the increasing relevance of research fields that compel to its revision. This is just the goal of the present issue of «Teoria», which also aims to let a number of hints emerge to correct, modify or even replace current definitions and understandings of nature with more adequate ones to constitute an effective reference for the problems of our time. The essays in this collection are the result of an international Call for Papers, which had a very important response in terms of number and quality of the submitted abstracts, as further proof of the fact that rethinking nature is in and for itself one of the burning issues of our time. And just by virtue of the number, quality, and interest of the submitted papers, it was decided to devote to «Rethinking ‘Nature’» both issues of «Teoria 2014». Hence, to this first issue on «Burning issues» a second one will follow on «Authors and problems».
