Abstract:

Landscapes generate meaning and impact on three major areas of scholarly
interest: language and visual discourse, spatial practices and global
capitalism.

Semiotic Landscapes is an exciting addition to the study of linguistic
landscapes.

It looks at how landscape generates meaning and combines three major
areas of scholarly interest each concerned with central dimensions of
contemporary life: language and visual discourse, spatial practices, and
also the changes bought about by global capitalism and ever increasing
mediatization.

The editors look at: the textual/discursive construction of place; the use
of space as a semiotic resource; the extent to which these processes are
shaped by wider economic and political re-orderings of post-industrial or
advanced capitalism; changing patterns of human mobility and transnational
flows of ideas and images.

The collection demonstrates the way written discourse interacts with all
other discursive modalities: visual images, nonverbal communication,
architecture and the built environment. From the red light districts of
Switzerland to the transgressive public art of graffiti, all landscape can
be seen to generate meaning. Semiotic Landscapes looks at how and why,
and places this meaning generation in an interdisciplinary and thoroughly
modern cross-section of global trends.
