Professor Steve Skaggs gives Semiotics & Discourse workshop

Graphic Design professor Steve Skaggs was the first speaker in the fall Semiotics & Discourse workshop. Skaggs discussed semiotic theory for graphic design from his recently published book FireSigns.

This workshop series provides space for faculty and students at the University of Louisville to share research on how language and other semiotic resources mediate social worlds. We aim to develop interdisciplinary dialogue among scholars from a variety of disciplines who study talk, text, interaction, semiotics, visual communication/design, and mass media. Sponsored by the Commonwealth Center for Humanities and Society and the Departments of English and Comparative Humanities.
