Dialogue is a communicative process in which people with different perspectives seek understanding. Participants in dialogue need not adopt each other's views, nor must their interaction result in agreement. Rather, mutual understanding is their primary goal. This definition of dialogue has been adopted by the Dialogue Zone at the University of Dayton, and this guide provides access to resources that explore various models of dialogue across different disciplines and fields of study. If you wish to recommend additional resources for this guide, please contact Ione Damasco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
