This edited volume proposes key contributions addressing the connectionsbetween two important themes: dialogue and representation. These connectionswere approached or interpreted in three possible ways: 1. Dialogue asrepresentation, 2. Normative perspectives on dialogue/representation issues,and 3. Representations of dialogue. The first interpretation -- Dialogue asrepresentation -- consists of exploring dialogue as an activity where manythings, beings or voices can be made present, whether we think in terms ofideologies, cultures, situations, collectives, roles, etc. The secondinterpretation – Normative perspectives on dialogue/representation issues –leads scholars to explore questions of normativity, which are often associated with the notion ofdialogue, when conceived as a morally stronger form of conversation. Finally,the third interpretation – Representations of dialogue – invites us to addressmethodological questions related to the representation of this type ofconversation. Echoing Bakhtin, contributors were invited to explore thepolyphonic, heteroglot, or dialogic character of any text, discourse orinteraction.
