FYI: LSA Jam Session, WWW Semiotics Course

Author: Daniel L. Everett

FYI Body: For those interested in playing some music with us at the LSA
(guitars, voice, and other nonelectric instruments), I have a
room for the event. If you are coming, contact me via the
Sheraton front desk. We start jamming at 630PM and will go to
about 830. Then we have plenty of time to go hear some electric,
Chicago blues.

The second lecture in my course on the World Wide Web called
"Critical Semiotics" is now online. The course, sponsored by the
Cyber Semiotic Institute, is embedded in the web site of the _Semiotic
Review of Books_ (located at http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/epc/srb).
Please see the description of the second lecture below.


LECTURE TWO: Two extensive critiques of semiotics.


John Stewart, _Language as Articulate Contact: Toward A Post-Semiotic
Philosophy of Communication_ (Albany: State University Press of New York,

Robert Hodge and Gunther Kress, _Social Semiotics_ (Ithaca: Cornell
University Press, 1988).


I'd appreciate it if you would bring this lecture to the
attention of those who also might be interested and I encourage you to
