A new edition of "The Victorian" will be published in January 2015. Please send along your articles, reviews and conference papers for inclusion.
Everyone – politicians, Disney films, pop songs, our therapists, friends and professors – keep telling us things will turn out alright, while almost every scientific report and every other news article we read counters that notion. Political activists are encouraged to affect change with smiles on their faces and cancer patients are asked to "fight" their disease with positive thinking. Obama's promises of hope and change spoke to the fears and desires of many, even though his campaign poster showed him looking in no specific direction at all. Everywhere we encounter the elusive message that we all share some common goal and that we're all in the same boat.
Semiofest is the go to event for anyone interested in applied semiotics. Semiotics practitioners, designers, researchers, buyers, communicators, planners come and share their work.
