Designing dialogue : argumentation as conflict management in social interaction

Greco, Sara

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 68, p. 7-15

The escalation of disagreement into overt conflict in social interaction can be avoided, if disagreement is managed through argumentative dialogue. This paper explores the characteristics of argumentative dialogue and presents the role of third parties who design spaces for others' dialogue. After discussing the prototypical example of dispute mediators, this contribution considers other...

The semiotics of migrants’ food : between codes and experience

Greco, Sara

In: Semiotica, 2016, no. 211, p. 59–80

This paper sets out to analyze cultural semiotics of migrants’ food and culinary practices. Moving from the perspective of the Tartu school of semiotics, which views culture both as a grammar (a set of codes) and as a set of texts, food can be characterized as a specific cultural element where grammar and text (code and experience) are woven together. International migrants live one or more...

Does a good argument make a good answer? Argumentative reconstruction of children's justifications in a second order false belief task

Lombardi, Elisabetta ; Greco, Sara ; Massaro, Davide ; Schär, Rebecca ; Manzi, Federico ; Iannaccone, Antonio ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly ; Marchetti, Antonella

In: Learning, Culture and Social Interaction, 2018, vol. 18, p. 13-27

This paper proposes a novel approach to interpret the results of a classical second-order false belief task (the ice cream man task) administered to children in order to investigate their Theory of Mind. We adopted a dialogical perspective to study the adult-child discussion in this research setting. In particular, we see the adult-child conversation as an argumentative discussion in which...

Adding a temporal dimension to the analysis of argumentative discourse : justified reframing as a means of turning a single-issue discussion into a complex argumentative discussion

Greco, Sara ; Schär, Rebecca ; Pollaroli, Chiara ; Mercuri, Chiara

In: Discourse Studies, 2018, vol. 20, no. 6, p. 1-17

This paper seeks to extend existing models of argumentation by considering an important dimension of real-life argumentative discourse: how complex argumentative discussions evolve over time. We define a complex argumentative discussion as a multi-issue discussion, in which the different issues are interrelated in the form of a hierarchy. We claim that justified reframing might be used to...

Do adult-children dialogical interactions leave space for a full development of argumentation? A case study

Greco, Sara ; Mehmeti, Teuta ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: Journal of Argumentation in Context, 2017, vol. 6, no. 2, p. 219

This paper sets out to analyse a case study of adult-children interaction in an educational context from a perspective of argumentation. We select a case in which 3 argumentative discussions are opened and we analyse them with the aim of understanding whether they are fully developed from a point of view of argumentation; or whether they are cut short and why. Our focus is not on the children’s...

Knowledge-oriented argumentation in children

Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly ; Arcidiacono, Francesco ; Breux, Stéphanie ; Greco, Sara ; Miserez-Caperos, Céline

In: Scrutinizing Argumentation in Practice, 2015, p. 135-150

This paper analyzes children’s argumentative discussions centered on the resolution of cognitive tasks, starting from the hypothesis that children’s interventions are more complex and complete than usually described in psychological research on argumentation skills. Our results can be viewed as a possibility to reconsider the usual school situations in which children’s argumentative skills...
