Meeting Description:

The Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop explores the potential for Peircian
semiotics to foster disciplinary exchange and address pressing theoretical
challenges. This leads our group into some of the most important questions in
the study of human beings: what is the role of the environment, language,
material culture, and the mind in the development of the human condition? In
what ways do these various entities mediate our relations to each other and to
the world? How do we reconcile both the natural and socio-cultural aspects of
humankind? What role does the growth and development of the body and its senses
play in the fusion of these aspects? If humans are considered part of the
natural world, can non-humans be characterized as active participants in the
human world, perhaps even types of "persons"?

Call for Papers

The Semiotics Rackham Interdisciplinary Work Group at the University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, is excited to place a call for papers, media, and
performance for our inaugural conference.

We invite contributions of work that addresses or challenges the theme of sign
activity as constitutive and constructive of nature and culture. This is an
interdisciplinary conference; in addition to scholarly papers, we also invite
submissions from artists, filmmakers, performers, musicians, etc. whose work
interrogates the processes and possibilities of sign activity and meaning.

Speakers include E. Valentine Daniel (Columbia U.), Paul Bouissac (U. Toronto),
Terrence Deacon (U.C. Berkeley), and Lenore Malen (Parsons/New School).
