(International network for edusemiotics)

Welcome to the forum page of international Semiotics and Education Network!

This is a forum and homepage of the international Semiotics and Education Network which was founded in the seminar "SEMIOSIS AS A FOUNDATIONAL CONCEPT FOR EDUCATION" held in University of Ghent, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Belgium, 16-17 October 2008.

As someone can notice the theme (upper bar) of this forum is borrowed from the University of Ghent - as an honour for affording the fine context for the seminar.

The founding father of this network is professor Andrew Stables, who invited that seminar.




13th World Congress of Semiotics

Semiotics and education Network plans to organize with biosemioticians a panel on learning and adaptation




Edusemiotics is a new branch of theoretical semiotics alongside biosemiotics, ecosemiotics etc.

The novel term is coined by Marcel Danesi in an introduction to Semiotics Education Experience (2010, ed by Inna Semetsky).

Edusemiotics was formally launched as a direction in the theory and philosophy of education and semiotics at the next IASS congress in September 2014, Sofia Bulgaria.
