Political Dialogue Analysis
Extendet Deadline: 15 April 2010
Würzburg International Symposium on Dialogue in Politics
September 13-15, 2010 – Wuerzburg (Germany)
CALL FOR PAPERS
Human beings are articulate mammals and political agents. How are the two connected: is there a direct connection between them? Is politics necessarily mediatised, or is it articulated directly? What is political dialogue, and what are the realisations of dialogue about politics and political dialogue?
The goal of the symposium on Dialogue in Politics is to bring together different analytic approaches and methodologies used in political discourse analysis and political dialogue analysis, examining politics as text-and-talk, politics as media events, the construction of micro politics and macro politics in and through dialogue, to name but the most prominent ones. In this sense, the symposium is open to the various approaches in Dialogue Analysis and Political Discourse Analysis but will have a specific focus on approaches that aim at addressing the mixed game of effective dialogic interaction. Issues related to cultural norms and cultural variation, mediatisation and institutionalization of political dialogue are included.
Possible session topics:
- Parliamentary discourse
- Political interview
- Political speech
- Political identities
- Politics and power
- Politics and gender
- Politics as text and talk
- Positioning in political dialogue
