2nd International Conference & Exhibition
on Semiotics and Visual Communication
24-26 October 2014
University of Northampton
Welcome to the website of the 2nd International Conference & Exhibition on Semiotics and Visual Communication. This event will take place from the 24th to the 26th of October 2014 at the University of Northampton, and is being organised by the Cyprus Semiotics Association together with the School of The Arts at the University of Northampton. The conference will be accompanied by an Art and Design exhibition with the theme ‘Culture of Seduction (the seduction of culture)’. This inclusive conference and exhibition aims to investigate the broad subject field of semiotics in its widest context, celebrating the exploration of connections, tensions, contradictions and complementarity between the diversity of outputs.
The event seeks to bring together researchers, scholars and practitioners who study, evaluate and reflect upon the means by which semiotic theories can be analysed, perceived and articulated within the context of the various forms of theoretical and practice based visual communication. The conference welcomes papers from a broad interdisciplinary and theoretical spectrum, such as different semiotic paradigms, post-structural and postmodern approaches, social semiotics, theories of culture and visual communication.
Papers will be accepted in English.
