Signs and Society is a new multidisciplinary journal in the humanities and social sciences focusing on the study of sign process (or semiosis) in the realms of social action, cognition, and cultural form. Taking as its broad mission the study of “signs and society,” the journal publishes articles that analyze sign processes in some specifiable or generalizable social circumstance, historical period, or textual artifact. Focusing directly on semiosis in its multiple dimensions, the journal aims to promote collaborative translation across analytical categories and technical vocabularies already established in distinct disciplinary traditions and to uncover unanticipated parallels in the ways semiosis is manifest in diverse empirical domains.
Signs and Society is founded collaboratively by the Semiosis Research Center at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and the Department of Anthropology and Graduate Program in Global Studies at Brandeis University, with funding from the National Research Foundation of Korea’s "Humanities Korea" project.
