Virtual Conference

Dear colleagues, we have been attentive to the Covid-19 evolution and noticed that the local health authorities cannot guarantee that in June 2021 the pandemic will subside. Facing this situation, the organizing committee, together with the ISDS, decided to hold the "11th International Conference on the Dialogical Self" in the form of a virtual meeting.

The good news is this will allow us to receive new contributions from those colleagues who could not participate after the previous call. On this site you will find all the information about the new dates and conditions of participation. Our great dialogical community will keep the dialogue alive!


The Organizing and Scientific Committees invite submissions for the 11th International Conference on the Dialogical Self (11th ICDS). The purpose of the virtual conference is to create a forum for dialogue across the boundaries of specific (sub)disciplines that explore the possibilities and challenges related to the dialogical self. Central topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

1. Education & development (learning, teaching, development)

Papers focused on any area of human development, formal or non-formal education scenarios, or in any aspect of the teaching-learning processes at any educational level. 

2. Clinic & health

Papers focused on the improvement of health, and of any type of psychological disorder or of any kind of therapeutic process, both in its preventive and remedial condition.

3. Culture & social community

Papers focused on any enculturation and socialization process that has an evident social impact, such as globalization, emigration, changes in socio-political power, in cultural and artistic movements and trends, community networks, etc.

4. Organizations

Papers focused on organizational dynamics of any kind: entrepreneurship, non-governmental organizations, public or private institutions, professional identity, institutional borders crossing, etc.

5. Theory & methodology

Papers focused on the discussion or proposal of theoretical constructs (inspired or related to the Dialogical Self Theory) and alternative methodologies in the registration, analysis and presentation of data, from a quantitative, qualitative or mixed perspective.
