An interdisciplinary conference on Bakhtinian issues; CFP deadline

Welcome to Stockholm University, Sweden!

All those who are interested in Bakhtinian perspectives on dialogism are invited to attend the conference. We look forward to meeting you!


Aim of the Conference

The increased interest in the work of Mikhail Bakhtin among Western scholars has been particularly evident ever since the 1980s. Because of its erudition and versatility as well as its multidimensionality and open character, Bakhtin’s ideas about dialogism have been a source of inspiration for various approaches within different scientific fields.


The core of Bakhtin’s theory is dialogue and dialogicality, where the "I" and the "self", the "you" and the "other" are embedded in each other, affecting each other, and functioning together as a centrifugal force around which communication and life circles.


This interdisciplinary conference on Bakhtinian issues aims at addressing researchers, and, research on dialogue and dialogicality, within and between different academic disciplines.
