SIGNS OF THE WORLD: Interculturality and globalisation

1st Call for Papers / Proposals

Signs are conceived and circulate in a world whose recent evolution
has brought about a change in the nature of geopolitical and
intercultural relations. The evolution in the means of exchange, in
the representations of the world and the strategies devised by
political and institutional actors lead semioticians to appraise and
update their concepts and analysis tools. The 8th IASS congress will
have interculturality and globalisation as themes. It will allow for
clarification of the specific contributions of semiotics to world
comprehension and to political, economic, cultural, aesthetic and
anthropological debate. Through their involvement in critical
reflection on globalisation, semioticians contribute to the process of
clarifying issues arising from this reflection and have a role to play
in this contemporary debate: how world cultures can be made more
intellible to each other within the framework of their own
differences.

Below is an initial list of themes on which you are invited to submit
a title/an abstract for a paper, and/or organisational proposals.

1. Theoretical semiotics and epistemology
2. Differences and identities: discrimination and negotiation
3. Communication: a system of exchange and production
4. Semiotics and cultural practices
5. Semiotics and aesthetic practices
6. Semiotics of the globalisation of space and time
7. Critical discourse on the political economy of the sign
8. Semiotics and the history of globalisation

Modalities

Titles/abstracts for papers and organizational proposals are to be
submitted before February 21st, 2003. They can include lectures,
round-tables and special sessions, and formulate additional ideas in
English, French, German or Spanish.

Proposals (up to 2000 strokes) are to be sent through e-mail (rtf
format) to the following address:

semio2004univ-lyon2.fr
