Title: The Promise of Dialogue
Subtitle: The dialogic turn in the production and communication of knowledge
Written By: Louise Phillips
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ds.12
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 12
Description:

It has become commonplace to employ dialogue-based approaches in
producing and communicating knowledge in diverse fields. Here, “dialogue”
has become a buzzword that promises democratic, participatory processes of
mutual learning and knowledge co-production. But what does “dialogue”
actually entail in the fields in which it is practised and how can we analyse
those practices in ways that take account of their complexities?

"The Promise of Dialogue" presents a novel theoretical framework for
analysing the dialogic turn in the production and communication of knowledge
that builds bridges across three research traditions - dialogic communication
theory, action research, and science and technology studies.

It also provides an empirically rich account of the dialogic turn through case
studies of how dialogue is enacted in the fields of planned communication,
public engagement with science and collaborative research. A critical,
reflexive approach is taken that interrogates the complexities, tensions and
dilemmas inherent in the enactment of “dialogue” and is oriented towards
further developing dialogic practices from a position normatively supportive of
the dialogic turn.
