Semiootika suvekool 2013 - Autocommunication in Semiotic Systems

Summer School 2013 is five-day event taking place from August 18 to 23 at the Kääriku Leisure and Sports Center in Southern Estonia. This year's Summer School is dedicated to the 40th anniversary from the publication of the Theses on the Semiotic Study of Cultures, which first appeared in 1973.There lies a quintessential coincidence between cultural semiotics, Tartu-Moscow school, and the Theses which places this triplet amongst both the important and the amusing in the story of humanities. Taking the example of Theses from the past, and reflecting over it together with its influences across times to today, the semiotic circles might take up reflective autocommunication in order to set future steps in organising both the paradigm of semiotics and communicate the institution of semiotics to neighbouring paradigms. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Theses on the Semiotic Study of Cultures, we call for reflections on the context and co-texts leading to and from that milestone in semiotic studies.
