Membership entitles you to participate and/or spectate such events as the Early Career Researchers seminars mentioned above, plus a number of events with preferential rates which occur ‘under the auspices’ of the IASS.

To replace our token scheme with our publishing partner, de Gruyter, the publisher of the Association’s journal, Semiotica, there will be new publication benefits. Membership of the IASS will entitle you to benefits equal to those of the token scheme in order redeem online content from de Gruyter when their new platform is launched.

In addition, members of the Association, especially early career researchers, will have immediately at their disposal the services of the IASS Collegium, a specially assembled panel of global semiotics’ leaders ready to provide support for job applications, promotions and grant applications, as well as the forthcoming mentoring scheme.
