PRESIDENTIAL ADRESS OF THE IASS/AIS

Helsinki, Feb 1st, 2011

EnglishFrançaiseEspañol Deutsch

Dear semioticians,

As you may know, the IASS/AIS was established over 40 years ago in Paris as a result of the work some leading semioticians of the time: Benveniste, Sebeok, Lévi-Strauss, Jakobson, Greimas, Eco, Kristeva and others. From the beginning it was intended to be an umbrella organization for all national and professional societies in our disciplinary fields. Since then it has been running such major activities as world congresses of semiotics (now every 3 years), and the highly esteemed official journal of our association, Semiotica, published by de Gruyter Mouton in Berlin).

Despite the efficient and hugely successful running of these high profile enterprises, a consolidated list of potential IASS members has still not been achieved. In order to serve our members’ interests it is vital that every single semiotician reacts to this message and renew his/her membership whilst also encouraging younger semioticians and associated researchers to join the IASS.

As a global institution, the IASS is not in a position to obtain funds national sources. Therefore it is crucial that every individual semiotician should support the IASS/AIS if semiotics in all its forms is to flourish in the contemporary world and its traditions of scholarly enquiry are to continue. Many of you will already be members of scientific societies, some of which may be ‘semiotic’ to some extent; however, this does not preclude you from belonging to the IASS. Indeed, the IASS can only continue with your initiatives. Your participation, therefore, is truly welcomed.

I encourage everyone to renew/start their membership and gain all of the benefits of this international organization in return for the small membership fees indicated below.

(If response to this call for membership renewal is strong, De Gruyter Mouton has informed us of the possibility of offering additional benefits to registered IASS/AIS members, such as a special individual member subscription price to the Semiotica journal and a society member discount on all semiotics titles published at Mouton).

With all my best wishes to your precious work for semiotics,

I remain very sincerely yours,

Eero Tarasti

President of the IASS/AIS
