Articles Needed on Dialogue

NCDD member Paul Wahrhaftig ([email protected]) let us know that articles are needed on the role of dialogue in post-war healing for the next issue of Conflict Resolution Notes. The issue will focus on what we can do now to promote or lay the base for post conflict healing and reconciliation. Submissions should be submitted to Paul ASAP. Recommended length is 6 double-spaced pages.

The issue will look not only at healing relations between the USA and the rest of the world, but also the internal divisions in the USA as we fight the current war. Where does dialogue fit in both now and after the conflict? Go to to get a feel for the style of the publication.

Blue Buttons Promote Dialogue

NCDD member Paul Wahrhaftig sent us a copy of a fascinating article entitled "Artist's blue buttons ask Americans to talk about Iraq," suggesting that we build on the artist's idea. Nancy Hwang, a 31-year-old Manhattan artist, has been distributing plain blue metal buttons. The buttons have no words on them; "they're a symbol of dialogue. They mean 'let's talk - about Iraq.'" The buttons are blank to make a point: that people need to talk to each other about the Iraqi crisis rather than just display their views on a button. The buttons are available for free in some New York galleries, at the Andy Warhol museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (, whose mission is to be a vital forum of discussion about art and society.
