Ways of Semiotic Research

(Sozopol, Bulgaria, 4-11 September 2016)

Keynote speakers: Jacques Fontanille, Gunther Kress, Torkild Thellefsen and Bent Sørensen

The traditional semiotic school is open to early career researchers, students and PhDs in semiotics. The school will focus on the ways of semiotic research and the main program will consist in seminars, lectures, workshops, fieldwork and different other forms of sharing experience on the most academically acknowledged approaches. Participants will have the chance to present their own projects and receive valuable feedback from affirmed scholars during the PhD Marathon. The lectures will be delivered by the keynote speakers and other leading semioticians from Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Bulgaria.

The School will host a meeting of the project “Umberto Eco in his own words”, chaired by Torkild Thellefsen and Bent Sørensen. It will consist in a Round table, open to external participants as well. The expected proposals should take as their starting point a quote from Eco. The round table will take place on 5 and 6 September.
