Adam, an Australian journalist, has always had a penchant for the unpredictable and the chaotic. It is no wonder then that among the many places he visits, he falls in love with a part of history-a beautiful old town in South India, then called Fort Cochin. It is an offer by his Australian publishing house to visit and research the culture of old Fort Cochin, which whets his fascination to learn more of the town and its people, culture, literary standing, and dialect. The surprise offer paves the way to a journey that will lead Adam to long-forgotten treasures, unspoken stories, life-changing decisions, and long-standing friends. Follow Adam on a nostalgic journey of destiny and discovery. What sort of treasure will Adam find under the floorboards of the old town house in South India-a house built decades ago in the era of Dutch occupancy? Despite the judgment of his very clear-headed friends, and adversity in all shape and form, will Adam fulfill his quest and prove that this was no freak accident after all?
Intergroup dialogue has emerged as an educational and community building approach that brings together members of diverse social and cultural identities to engage in learning together'â€sharing and listening to each other's perspectives and stories, and exploring inequalities and community issues that affect them all, albeit differently'â€so that they may work collectively and individually to promote greater diversity, equality and justice. Focusing on facilitation training and preparation for intergroup dialogues, this is a comprehensive guide for practitioners, covering the theoretical, conceptual, and practical knowledge they need. It is intended for staff, faculty, and administrators in higher education, and community agencies, as well as for human resources departments in workplaces. Despite the growing interest in, and impact of intergroup dialogue, little has been written on the important role of facilitation. This book shifts the focus from learning outcomes, that is what students gain, to understanding how students gain what they do, and to determine what it is about the intergroup dialogue model and design that facilitates learning, and to identify the crucial role that facilitators play in this process. This book combines the theoretical and conceptual foundations of social justice education with training models for intergroup dialogue facilitation. It presents the work and insights of both academics and practitioners who train facilitators for intergroup dialogues, for applications of intergroup dialogue techniques, and for the related fields of dialogue and deliberation. It also includes research on facilitator learning outcomes from the time of training and intergroup dialogue facilitation, through their lives on campus post-training, and on to their post-graduate and professional careers. The expert chapter authors represent the breadth and depth of leaders in the field of intergroup dialogue.

Difference, Dialogue, and Development is an in-depth exploration of the collected works of Mikhail Bakhtin to find relevance of key concepts of dialogism for understanding various aspects of human development. Taking the reality of differences in the world as a given, Bandlamudi argues that such a reality necessitates dialogue, and actively responding to that necessity leads to development. The varied works of Bakhtin that span several decades passing through the most tumultuous period in Russian history, are brought under one banner of three D's - Difference, Dialogue and Development - and the composite features of the three D's emerge as leitmotifs in every chapter.
