Bio note

Dima Mohammed is a postdoctoral researcher at the Reasoning and Argumentation Lab, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal. Dima holds a PhD degree in Argumentation Theory (University of Amsterdam, 2009). Her research focuses on the complexities of public political arguments and the challenges these pose. She is particularly interested in questions related to the strategic shape and the rationality of argumentative exchanges, as well as in the links between argumentative and political dimensions of the argumentative practice. She has taught argumentation and persuasion in several universities in the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland and Canada and served as member of programme and organising committees of various argumentation conferences including the 1st European Conference on Argumentation (ECA Lisbon 2015) and OSSA 2016.
