Nancy, August 27-29, 2015
25th anniversary of the International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA)

Since the Conference is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA), this event’s theme will be the anthropologies of dialogue. According to Kant, anthropology refers to the study of the human beings in their essence and progress. Given the omnipresence and omnitemporality of dialogue, we can claim that it constitutes one of the principal characteristics of humanity, i.e., what makes human beings who they are. Thus, the study of dialogue is simultaneously concerned with the humanities, the social sciences and the natural sciences. The 25th anniversary of IADA is an excellent opportunity to examine the progress made in our knowledge of dialogue and this will be the subject of the plenary conferences.

The conference will be organized as follows: plenary conferences will focus on the main theme of dialogue, while workshops and poster sessions will offer the opportunity to discuss all the aspects, properties and applications of this knowledge. Workshops will host panels and lectures devoted to the most recent fields of social practices, such as tele-medicine, dialogical therapeutic tele-interviews, robotic care for the elderly, and dialogue in its various contexts: education, politics, mental or somatic health care, labor, legal, etc.

The conference language is English.

Thank you to professors Alain Trognon and Martine Batt (interpsy, Université de Lorraine), Pr Anne Piponnier and Dr Emmanuelle Simon (CREM, université de Lorraine) for organizing what will certainly be a terrific conference.
