Semiotics: Signs of the Times is Brill’s new series devoted to the study of semiotics across disciplines. This book series starts from the general idea of semiotic signs, divided into icons, indexes, and symbols. Semiotics gives meaning to signs, sign functions, and sign processes. It is also concerned with sign-users (senders and receivers) and how signs are transmitted from one organism to another. To give meaning happens in everyday experience as well as experimentation. Semiotics seeks to discover how the signs of language, gestures, visual images, music, dance, theater, as well as medical and psychological symptoms, architecture, and political theory embark with a theory of signs to give belief, values, and techniques which serve for theoretical foundations and interdisciplinary method in sciences and humanities.
Semiotics: Signs of the Times invites contributions on the newest trend of cultural research in linguistics, literature, fine arts, philosophy, biology, anthropology, folklore, technology, and other fields. The series is open to new synthesis of techniques of research, experiences, memories, and myth with new meanings. Proposals for single-authored monographs and edited volumes are equally welcome.
All submissions are subject to a double anonymous peer-review process prior to publication. Authors are equally invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
Authors will find general proposal guidelines at the Brill Author Gateway. BRILL strongly recommends the use of the MLA Handbook of Style or the Chicago Manual of Style for this series.
