John Benjamins Publishing announces a new book series:

Dialogue Studies
Editor: Edda Weigand, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster

The series ''Dialogue Studies'' takes the notion of dialogicity as central;
it starts from the classical view of ‘language as dialogically directed’
and encompasses every type of language use, workaday, institutional and

By covering the whole range of language use, the growing field of dialogue
studies comes close to pragmatics and studies in discourse or conversation.
The concept of dialogicity, however, provides a clear methodological
profile and allows us to structure the pragmatic ‘perspective’ and the
‘pan-discipline’ of discourse. It focuses on methodological premises such
as: action and reaction; the integration of the human abilities of
speaking, thinking and perceiving; dialogic interaction as the intentional
effort to pursue definable goals and interests.

The series aims to cross disciplinary boundaries and considers a genuinely
interdisciplinary approach necessary for addressing the complex phenomenon
of dialogic language use. All disciplines that deal with the human ability
of dialogic interaction from different perspectives, in everyday
interaction as well as in institutional contexts, are addressed:
linguistics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, rhetoric, anthropology,
applied linguistics, culture sciences, the media sciences, economics,

The current state of research in science in general is characterized by a
turning point from closed rule-governed models to open models of
probability. In this sense, Dialogue Studies aims to support new ways of
theorizing and opens up innovative cross-disciplinary advances in the
complex. The series will be of interest to existing theoretical approaches
to competence as well as empirical approaches to performance, bridging the
gap between competence and performance by focusing on human beings and
their competence-in-performance.

This peer reviewed series will include monographs, thematic collections of
articles, and introductory textbooks in the relevant areas.
