Semiotics in the Lifeworld

15th World Congress of Semiotics / IASS-AIS

August 30 – September 3, 2022, Thessaloniki, Greece

Semiotics in the Lifeworld

The 15th World Congress of Semiotics aims to foreground semiotics as the socially engaged, critical investigation of the sign- and meaning-making processes forming the core of human worldmaking. Semiotic investigation is grounded in the historical lifeworld, in concrete timescapes and semioscapes, in the dense and dynamic weave of semiotic practices that structure human experience and communicative (inter)action by constantly (re)articulating the perceptual and the conceptual, the discursive and the performative, the ethical and the aesthetic, the ideological and the figurative, the material and the immaterial, the human and the non-human, the natural and the man-made.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Jury Lotman 100

2022 is the centenary of the birth of Jury Lotman (1922-2022), the renowned Russian-Estonian semiotician (http://jurilotman.ee ). In collaboration with the University of Tartu, the Estonian Semiotics Association and the Juri Lotman Repository, the 15th World Congress of Semiotics will devote a special section of its scientific program (specially themed panels, roundtables and keynotes) on Lotman’s work, as well as host a series of special events (masterclasses, a virtual book exhibition of translations of Lotman’s works, screening of Lotman’s video-lectures). Details about the Lotman 100 related activities will be announced presently.

3rd Semiotics Journals Fair

The Third Journals Fair of the IASS will consist of an initial gathering in Thessaloniki featuring an explanation, by each editor of a semiotics journal present, in NO MORE THAN TWO English sentences, of each journal’s specific mission. Then editors will disperse to tables allotted to their journals where they can meet potential contributors from the audience and distribute relevant information, publicity etc. associated with their journals. Early career researchers, especially, are invited to seize this opportunity to speak with semiotics journals editors about their projects and potential publications. Among the editors present will be those for SemioticaSocial SemioticsPunctumDigital Age in Semiotics and Communication, and others.

Early Career Researchers Meeting

Further to the IASS-sponsored First World Meeting of Early Career Researchers in Semiotic Studies, held in Medellin, Columbia  https://iass-ais.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Medellin-ECR-meeting-programme-2020.pdf, the IASS will now launch an Early Career Researcher Network. Led by Jorge Eduardo Urueña López (Latin America), Pengjia (Asia), Alin Olteanu (Europe) and Damien Tomaselli (Africa), the launch event in Thessaloniki will seek to bring together ECRs in semiotics across the globe in order to find ways to collaborate, to promote semiotics and to thrive. All IASS members are welcome, but the Network will look to attract the participation of members who have gained a PhD within the last 8, as well as PhD, Masters and undergraduate students”.
