The research group Dialogic Communication takes its starting-point in the so-called dialogic turn in the production and communication of knowledge. The dialogic turn is characterised by a proliferation of dialogue-based approaches across fields of practice including organisational, digital, health, research, science, environmental and development communication. In these practices, communication is conceived as a dialogue in which knowledge is co-produced collaboratively through the participation of different social actors.

Implicit here is a normative hope that communication processes based on dialogue, collaboration and participation can further co-existence across differences (including those of age, ethnicity, social class, gender, politics, organisational position and theoretical perspective). “Dialogue”, “collaboration” and “participation” have become buzzwords which promise democratic, participatory processes; as a result, there is a tendency to underplay the tensions arising in the meeting between the different knowledge forms and knowledge interests of the collaborating actors.
