International stem cell symposium held at IKBFU

On April 20, the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University hosted the Current Stem Cell Therapy and Technology international symposium. The event was timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the discovery of stem cells by the German Professor Franz Ernst Christian Neumann who lived and worked in Königsberg, today Kaliningrad. He was the first to suggest that the bone marrow was the site of new blood cell production. Neumann’s hypothesis described in 1868 largely corresponded to the findings of the Russian researcher Aleksandr Maksimov, which were published in 1909.

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.
