Social Science as Social Semiotics: Bridging Theories, Methods and Practices

2018 is a year to celebrate two important milestones in the history of social semiotics – publication of landmark books in 1978 and 1988. Forty years ago, Michael Halliday issued Language as a Social Semiotic. Ten years after, Robert Hodge and Gunther Kress published Social Semiotics. To mark these two important anniversaries the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University holds the conference Social Science as Social Semiotics as a part of wider research and education program Baltic Modes of Social Semiotics.
