The Dialogical Conference

Our dialogical conference is a space of possibility where small groups of researchers who share common commitments to social problems can come together for an extended period to engage in democratic dialogue. In a relaxed setting, scholars with different levels of experience can leverage their distributed wisdom to think expansively. This is an open process driven by curiosity and collaboration.


The conference has three tracks. Track 1 includes building a social network of researchers who are interested in the focal TCR-related issue. Track 2 involves teams of researchers who have already made the commitment to work together furthering their empirical work they started before the conference. Track 3 involves working with collaborators to implement solutions.


Past conference participants have successfully collaborated on published research articles and built the capacity to do transformative work.
