Never before has there been a greater need for deeper listening and more open communication to cope with the complex problems facing our organizations, businesses and societies. Renowned scientist David Bohm believed there was a better way for humanity to discover meaning and to achieve harmony. He identified creative dialogue, a sharing of assumptions and understanding, as a means by which the individual, and society as a whole, can learn more about themselves and others, and achieve a renewed sense of purpose.

CMC– Computer Mediated Communication is one of the catchwords of modern society. The importance of the Internet grows dramatically from year to year in more or less all disciplines. This volume contains the papers (12 contributions in English and 6 in German) read at an international meeting of the IADA (International Association for Dialogue Analysis, Bologna) in Erlangen, April 2–3, 1998. There were two sections at the conference, one dealt with the new means of electronic communication, mainly with E-Mail communication and with Internet Relay Chat (IRC), the other, more traditional, dealt with dialogues on television and the radio, or with specific aspects of Mass Media communication.

Als Diskussionsforum zielt der MX Dialogue auf die Reflexion und den fundierten Austausch über Trends, die Einfluss auf die Wertschöpfungsnetzwerke nehmen. Im Rahmen des ersten Arbeitskreises FLEAN PRODUCTION: flexibel und lean wurde die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft im Rahmen dieses Veranstaltungsformates vertieft fortgesetzt und die Ergebnisse im vorliegenden Abschlussbericht veröffentlicht. Steigende Volatilität im Nachfrageverhalten, gestiegene Anforderungen an die Reaktionsgeschwindigkeit auf höchst kundenindividuelle Produkte und Anpassungen der Prozesse sind völlig branchenunabhängig und für jedes Unternehmen heutzutage von besonderer Bedeutung. Dafür die bestehenden Lösungsansätze zu hinterfragen und weiterzudenken, war den 14 teilnehmenden Unternehmen des Arbeitskreises ein besonderes Anliegen und so zeigt die hohe Bereitschaft zum Austausch und zu intensiven Diskussionen die Brisanz des gemeinsam gewählten Arbeitskreisthemas. Althergebrachte Denkansätze zum Thema der schlanken Produktion sollten dabei überprüft werden. Der Abschlussbericht des Arbeitskreises erläutert Lösungen zur Ausrichtung der Unternehmensprozesse unter Berücksichtigung von Volatilitätsaspekten sowie der Beherrschung der zunehmend unsicheren Umweltbedingungen mit den Unternehmen. Im Rahmen der Arbeit werden folgende Thesen überprüft: „Ist der Ansatz der ‚Lean Production‘ in volatilen Zeiten flexibel genug?“ und „Welche Gestaltungsansätze können für die Themenschwerpunkte erarbeitet werden? Neben den vorgestellten unternehmensspezifischen Ausprägungen und der generischen Gestaltungsansätze werden die Erkenntnisse aus den Expertenteams zur Veranschaulichung in einem „Use Case“, der die praktische Anwendbarkeit illustriert, aufgebaut.

On Dialogue

Drawing from the works of Plato and more contemporary philosophers such as Bakhtin, Buber, Taylor, and Gadamer, On Dialogue explores the necessity of dialogue to being. Author Dmitri Nikulin argues that dialogue is not just a form of communication, but it is the very conditio humana. Nikulin provides a systematic account of dialogue and its role in philosophy, literature, and oral discourse. Exploring the notion of human unfinalizability in dialogical communication, which does not always come to a consensus but is always carried on further in order to express one's self as one's personal other, On Dialogue argues that the human is a dialogical being in perpetual conversation with the other. By offering clues a better understanding of the being, Nikulin's work makes a significant contribution not only to the field of philosophy, but also to the study of anthropology and ontology.

"What forces continue to oppress and restrain women artists in contemporary China? Some powerful answers are provided in this fictional memoir of Xiao Lu, who played an important role in the avant-garde cultural scene during the tumultuous early months of 1989. The acclaimed "China/AvantGarde" exhibition organized by Gao Minglu at the National Art Museum in Beijing was shut down after about three hours from its opening Feb. 5 1989, when Xiao Lu shot live bullets into her mock-up of two telephone booths, turning an edgy installation work into an over-the-edge performance piece and an icon of the modern Chinese art movement. Many questions were left unanswered from where she got the gun to what she meant by all this. As it turns out, the man and the woman pictured in these two phone booths were specific people, and she was one of them the daughter of the director of a provincial art academy. Her father helped her get into the Central Academy in Beijing, where she was abused in various ways. In the 1989 exhibition, symbolically, she shot her nemesis, then went outside to a public telephone, called him, and told him what she had done. These events are naturally at the center of her memoir, but in describing the events and their aftermath, she offers remarkably candid views on the difficulties facing women in contemporary art circles and the way cultural power is exercised in China."--Publisher description.

Dialogue Editing for Motion Pictures

Dialogue editing is a crucial yet invisible part of filmmaking. Do it right, and no one notices. Do it wrong, and your film or video sounds messy, distracting, and unrealistic. This is a book for people who need to edit production sound for film, TV, or video but were never taught how to do it. It goes step by step through the process and covers all the workflows you are likely to encounter. Efficient working practices are emphasized throughout, so you learn to save time and avoid needless repetition. Many dialogue editors are hobbled by a lack of understanding of the non-sound aspects of filmmaking. Unlike editors who cut effects, backgrounds or Foley, a dialogue editor's work is directly affected by what has gone on before. How a film was shot, recorded and edited will dramatically influence the dialogue editing process. Much of this book, then, deals with things which at first glance don't appear to be dialogue. You will find overviews of film picture and sound postproduction--film, tape, NTSC, PAL, 24p, and HD. There are summaries of film picture editing, OMF manipulation, and ADR management. * A veteran sound editor shows you how to produce a flawless dialogue track * Covers organization and time management so you can work efficiently * Must-have information for sound editors, dialogue editors, and assistant editors * Foreword by Dominick Tavella, who mixes films in New York (some of his films include: Chocolat, Far and Away, Vanity Fair, and Chicago)

Overhearing Film Dialogue

Since the birth of cinema, film has been lauded as a visual rather than a verbal medium; this sentiment was epitomized by John Ford's assertion in 1964 that, "When a motion picture is at its best, it is long on action and short on dialogue." Little serious work has been done on the subject of film dialogue, yet what characters say and how they say it has been crucial to our experience and understanding of every film since the coming of sound. Through informative discussions of dozens of classic and contemporary films—from Bringing Up Baby to Terms of Endearment, from Stagecoach to Reservoir Dogs--this lively book provides the first full-length study of the use of dialogue in American film. Sarah Kozloff shows why dialogue has been neglected in the analysis of narrative film and uncovers the essential contributions dialogue makes to a film's development and impact. She uses narrative theory and drama theory to analyze the functions that dialogue typically serves in a film. The second part of the book is a comprehensive discussion of the role and nature of dialogue in four film genres: westerns, screwball comedies, gangster films, and melodramas. Focusing on topics such as class and ethnic dialects, censorship, and the effect of dramatic irony, Kozloff provides an illuminating new perspective on film genres.

Dramatic Dialogue

The Duologue of Personal Encounter

Author: Andrew K. Kennedy

Publisher: CUP Archive

ISBN: 9780521288453

Category: Drama

Page: 283

View: 7449

A comprehensive study of the different shapes and conventions of dialogue in major drama from Aeschylus to modern times. Following a sustained discussion of the special nature of dramatic dialogue the author singles out for detailed study the duologue of personal encounter between protagonists. The historical perspective is illustrated by close analysis of certain passages from Greek tragedy, Shakespeare, Jonson, Restoration Comedy, Ibsen, Strindberg, Brecht, O'Neill, Albee, Shepard, Beckett, Pinter and Stoppard. The duologues have been grouped so as to illuminate both the type of dramatic situation embodied, e.g. recognition, confession, the combat of wit, and the verbal style employed, from Greek stichomythis to the slangy contest of American rock stars. Andrew Kennedy presents the language and convention of each duologue as part of the play's total sign system. The critical approach integrates the formal and existential aspects of drama and theatre, showing both the emotional transformations and the changing modes of expression made possible in and through dialogue.
