Meeting Description:

The 2nd ICSRC (ICSRC-2014) will be held May 23 at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul, Korea. The topic of ICSRC-2014 is
“Narrative and Multimodality.”

As humans, we continually make stories and stories shape us. Our narratives can also become signs standing for ourselves or even culture.
A chief carrier of narratives is language, but non-linguistic devices such as visual images, material artifacts and gestures can also facilitate
communication of stories. Narrative and its multimodality thus need to be investigated from diverse perspectives in order to understand their
working procedures and/or function.

This conference seeks to explore various characteristics of narratives, including semantic and formal features, narratives in literary works,
storytelling and culture, and multimodality.

The ICSRC is a premier international conference covering interdisciplinary dialogues on semiosis (sign processes). The Semiosis Research
Center (SRC) is a research institute sponsored by Korea Research Foundation and its focus lies in the conceptual understanding of sign
processes (semiosis) which occur dynamically in relation to society. The first international conference was held in 2012 under a theme,
“Homo Sensus: Perception, Emotion and Semiosis” which highlighted the multidisciplinary relationship between human perception and
