Culture and Dialogue provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. The journal publishes one volume of two issues each year. One issue welcomes manuscripts that consider the broad theme of “culture and dialogue” in all its forms, from all perspectives, and through all methods. The other issue is thematic and seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator such as “Philosophy and the Dialogue,” “Art in Conversation,” “Comparing Cultures,” or “Dialogical Ethics.” The theme of the thematic issue is announced through dedicated calls for papers.

WE ALSO WELCOME PROPOSALS FOR GUEST EDITING THEMATIC SPECIAL ISSUES.

Other examples of topics that fall within the scope of the journal: •Dialogical encounters: theories and practices
•Cultures of sameness and otherness from a variety of perspectives (Eastern, African, Western, Indian, etc.)
•Reflections on cross-cultural formations within a particular field (philosophical, artistic, anthropological, social, religious, political, psychological, scientific, etc.)
•The idea of interculturality from within the traditions of interpretive or analytic philosophies

Examples of previous Special Issues:
•“French Thought in Dialogue”
•“Confucianism: Comparisons and Controversies”
•“African Thought and Dialogue”
•“Dialogue and Globalisation”

If you are interested in guest editing a special issue with us, please send a brief proposal + academic CV to martin.ovens@wolfson-oxford.com.
The Guest Editor(s) will be responsible for the entire editorial process of the Special Issue.
The publication date will be decided upon agreement once proposals are accepted.

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals!

The central theme of the Journal is cultural dialogue in all its forms. Because of its broad scope and relative non-technical nature, the Journal is suitable to all academic institutions at all levels of study, libraries and good bookshops across the English-speaking world and beyond.
Our Honorary Member Tzvetan Todorov passed away on the 7th February 2017. It is with great sadness that we learned of the news. Professor Todorov had been supportive of the Culture and Dialogue project from the outset. As a historian, philosopher, aesthetician, and literary critic he witnessed and reflected upon many of the good and bad things our modern world offered—and continues to offer. In one way or another the nature and possibility of the dialogue was always for him a central question to address, should we take the time and the trouble to think of how to bring out the best in the human condition. One thing that the cycles of life cannot take away from us is learning from the spirit of the dialogue that Tzvetan Todorov conveyed. The cruelty of death will never prevent us from transmitting to our fellow human beings what he called “that fragile legacy, those words that help us live a better life.”

Culture and Dialogue is an international peer-reviewed journal of cross-cultural philosophy and humanities that is published semi-annually and electronically only as of 2024. The journal seeks to encourage and promote research in the type of philosophy and theory that sees dialogue as a fundamental ingredient of cultural formations, that is to say the ways cultures become apparent and ultimately identifiable. What is meant here by culture is a particular manifestation of human achievement in the arts, languages, forms of expression (whether secular or religious), and customs of all kinds including political ones.

Dialogue, in this context, means a mode of relationship that lets cultural formations unfold by bringing together human beings and, for example, their natural environment, their historical past, traditions, external cultural influences, contemporary trends, other communities, or simply other persons in conversation.

Culture and Dialogue provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines, who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. The journal publishes one volume of two issues electronically each year. The first issue welcomes manuscripts that consider the theme of culture and dialogue in all its forms, from all perspectives, and through all methods. The second issue seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator such as “Philosophy and the Dialogue,” “Art in Conversation,” “Comparing Cultures,” or “Dialogical Ethics.” The language of the journal is English, but submissions in other languages including German, Chinese, French and Japanese may be considered for guest-edited issues.

The journal does not necessarily endorse the views expressed or the facts presented by authors in their essays or in the works cited.

Culture and Dialogue is endorsed by the UNESCO Chair in Comparative Studies of Spiritual Traditions, Their Specific Cultures and Interreligious Dialogue. The journal is also the publishing platform of the International Research Group for Culture and Dialogue (website: IRGCD).
