Beginning with the belief that understanding of differing perspectives comes through dialogue, this conference seeks to explore various aspects of dialogue under occupation.


As we intend this conference to be interdisciplinary, we invite scholars from various disciplines to submit papers that address the use of dialogue in the creation, maintenance, resistance, and resolution of occupation.


Multidisciplinary approaches and models of dialogue analysis such as Dialogue Grammar, Discourse Analysis, Critical Discourse Studies, Multi-modal Discourse Analysis, Conversational Analysis, Social Constructionism, etc., are welcomed.



Papers from the multiple disciplines (e.g., anthropology, cultural studies, discourse studies, education, history, linguistics, political science, psychology, sociology) relating to hegemony, power, agency, identity, among others, will be particularly relevant. Conference themes include, but are not limited to, the following strands:

Discourse of Enactment:

The language of the policies and politics of occupation


Discourse of Transaction:

The language of the media and its role in spreading the policies, keeping the occupied and the occupiers informed (or misinformed).


Discourse of Reaction:

The language of daily life under occupation: talking about the “self “ vs. the “other”, historical narratives of the occupation, center vs. periphery, the language of the ingroup, outgroup, and/or intergroup.


Discourse of Resolution:

The language of peacemakers and peacekeepers, as well as the language of resignation, acceptance, and coexistence.
