Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper examines how methods drawing upon dialogical communication theory and action research can be used to facilitate dialogue. A workshop was held with volunteers from the Danish Red Cross Youth. We use an exercise developed by Christina Hee Pedersen, using pictures to facilitate dialogue and storytelling. The theory is based mainly on dialogue philosophers Martin Buber and Mikhail Bakhtin, while the paper generally draws upon a wide variety of research within the field of dialogue studies. Co-production of knowledge is central to the approach and permeates the process between practitioners and researchers. The study includes an analysis of the interaction that took place during the workshop, studying relational dynamics and assessing whether dialogical moments occurs. The analysis shows that Pedersens exercise can facilitate dialogic moments in a space where dissensus and consensus can coexist. Drawing on Bakhtin the analysis shows that a multivocal space was established, legitimizing differing voices and disagreement.
