Creating Organizational Value

Rens van Loon

In 2017 I have published a book with the title Creating Organizational Value through Dialogical Leadership (Springer).

The book combines theory with practice, many case-studies and reflections. The video is a short introduction to the topic and the book, recorded at Tilburg University. 

Face masks as dialogical objects in times of COVID-19 

Luca Tateo

The COVID-19 pandemic brings forward a particular object, usually associated with the medical context: the face mask. How do people make-meaning of its sudden presence in everyday life? How this meaningful artefact mediates people affective experience in the auto and hetero-dialogue? I will discuss how the mask evokes both safety and fear, mediating between “I”, “Me” and the “Other”.

Writing the many selves in bereavement: A story of a spouse's death and dialogical self theory 

Reinekke Lengelle

What do we do when our spouse dies? How can we use poetry and narrative for our healing? How can we conceptualize the continued bond with the deceased through the dialogical self theory? 

Author, academic, and grieving spouse, Reinekke Lengelle, explains how we can move through grief, continue our conversation with our beloved spouse in healthy and creative ways, and move through bereavement poetically. Her upcoming book “Writing the self in bereavement” will be published with Routledge and is coming out early 2021.

Identity struggles in a border-crossing post-apartheid South African society: Afrikaner and Coloured youth- A dialogical self interpretation 

Charl Alberts

After promising years of the statesmanship of Nelson Mandela in the new democratic society many commentators currently seem to agree that the social fabric of the South African society is seriously unravelling on many levels, and that identity formation among citizens and young people is taking place amidst high levels of social turmoil, contradictions, conflict, tensions and uncertainty. In the light of increasing interest in studying youth identity formation processes the video presentation will focus on two minority groups in the South African context, namely Afrikaners and so-called Coloureds. Findings are interpreted from a Dialogical Self theoretical framework.

Exploring the Varieties of Intrapersonal Communication 

Tom Brinthaupt

Tom will discuss different kinds of self-talk (self-dialogues and self-monologues), ways that these can be measured, some recent research on their nature and frequency, and interesting questions related to when and why people might engage in these forms of intrapersonal communication. 

Novice Teachers, Moments of Wobble, and the Dialogical Self

Bob Fecho, Dawan Coombs, Trevor Thomas Stewart, and Todd S. Hawley

Teachers new to the profession enter into what Bakhtin might call “a dialogically agitated and tension-filled environment” of great uncertainty as they negotiate the complexities of enacting a pedagogy based on dialogical principles in schools where standardized tests and curriculums rule. Multiple I-positions engage and reengage as personal, professional, ideological, and political boundaries blur. Join interviewer Janette Hill in a Q & A session with the four authors of Novice Teachers Embracing Wobble in Standardized Schools as they discuss the understandings and implications of a two-year study built on a foundation of Dialogical Self Theory. The session will highlight the stories of novice teachers who encounter wobble moments—events that cause them to pause, look closely at, and reflect on their teaching practice.

Empathetic-Reflective-Dialogical Restorying: An emancipatory teaching-learning strategy

Janet Jarvis

In response to the clarion call for transformation and decolonisation of the curriculum, I offer Empathetic-Reflective-Dialogical Restorying as a teaching-learning strategy.  This strategy, was employed in three small-scale research projects in a South African Higher Education Institution, addressing decolonisation of the curriculum in the following ways: transdisciplinary engagement; changing how teaching-learning takes place and empowering students as agents of their own learning; depatriarchisation; and dispelling the myth of African inferiority. 

Ethno-cultural Identities and Multiethnic Learning Environments: A Voyage to Dialogical Self Theory

Jan Gube

video introduces my journey to dialogical self theory. It explains how I have used it to understand ethno-cultural identities in multiethnic learning environments. The video also takes viewers to the context of Hong Kong, an arena that offers opportunity to study questions about the shifting trajectories of I-positions of diverse individuals.
