Jury Lotman 100

2022 is the centenary of the birth of Jury Lotman (1922-2022), the renowned Russian-Estonian semiotician ( ). In collaboration with the University of Tartu, the Estonian Semiotics Association and the Juri Lotman Repository, the 15th World Congress of Semiotics will devote a special section of its scientific program (specially themed panels, roundtables and keynotes) on Lotman’s work, as well as host a series of special events (masterclasses, a virtual book exhibition of translations of Lotman’s works, screening of Lotman’s video-lectures). Details about the Lotman 100 related activities will be announced presently.

Semiotics Journals Exhibition

Whether in print or online-only, semiotic journals around the world are flourishing, evidencing the international momentum gained by semiotics in recent years. Starting with Kaunas (2016), the semiotics journals exhibition forms a standard feature of the World Congresses of Semiotics, aiming to showcase their wide variety and geographical distribution.

Publishers of semiotic journals, interested to be included in the exhibition, are welcome to send sample copies of their publication to the following address:
