Semiotics and Theory of Language
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Ivan Capeller, Adjunct Professor, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil.

In 1968, André Martinet edited a volume called “Le Langage” in which almost all knowledge available on this subject was presented and summarized according to the principles and methods of structural semiology and linguistics. Fifty years later, this epistemic horizon is no longer able to provide a conceptual unified paradigm combining semiotics with a broader theory of language. Somewhere in between the human and the natural sciences, does a theory of language necessarily need a semiotics as a pre-condition for its own existence? Must a theory of signs suppose Language as its axiomatical point of departure? The semiotical shift towards peircean pragmaticism and its multiple applied offsprings, such as biosemiotics and cybersemiotics, as well as the renewal of researches regarding the evolution of language as an actual biologic factor on the development of mankind, its culture and history, calls for an open debate around these issues. This session invites researchers not only from the field of semiotics and linguistics, but also from the fields of biology, paleontology, archaeology, anthropology, philosophy, history, aesthetics and cultural studies to share their findings about questions regarding semiotics, language and meaning, in their materiality as well as in their meta-reality.

Sign Languages and Gestures
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Claudia S. Bianchini, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, University of Poitiers, France.

The symposium would offer a moment of results and experiences sharing among researchers working on Sign Languages and Gestures, with the aim of investigating how methodologies and results in the study of Sign Languages could enrich methods and knowledge regarding Gestures, and vice-versa. Researches comparing Sign Languages and Gestures are welcome, as well as researches concerning just one of the two “poles” of the symposium.
