New issue: Digital Age in Semiotics & Communication, Volume 1, Issue 1, Spring 2018

Digital Age in Semiotics & Communication is a journal from the Southeast European Center for Semiotic Studies at the New Bulgarian University. It explores the new forms of knowledge, social and linguistic interaction, and cultural phenomena generated by the advent of the Internet.

The purpose of the journal is to provide a collaborative work field for scholars interested in researching new phenomena in the dynamic digital world. Our main purpose is to build a scientific bridge between the fields of semiotics, communications, social sciences and the problems of the digital era. We believe that our collaborations can raise the level of understanding for modern digital phenomena, providing both a solid theoretical framework and profound applied research.

The pilot issue summarizes the whole research program of the Center and the journal in particular. It is open to various problems concerning developments in digital culture and phenomena. We are interested in working with scholars from different research and applied fields, such as semiotics (both applied and theoretical), communication studies, marketing and advertising, linguistics and literary studies, anthropology and ethnography, cognitive science and psychology, and computer science.
