New semiotic journal – SIGNATA – Université de Liège


SIGNATA – Université de Liège.

SIGNATA aims to collect, organise and put to the test the approaches that drive current semiotic research.

The title SIGNATA condenses two main questions on the path taken by semiotics: its origin as a science of signs cf. indiciality, indexicality and its deve­lopment as a way of looking at the act of marking and tracing (the Latin verb signare means both tracing and indicating). SIGNATA therefore refers simultaneously to traces as well as to practices of tracing meaning.

The journal does not favour any particular theory, school or object of study: its goal is to nurture semiotics as a disciplinary project. We see semiotics as a dis­cipline demanding strong epistemological foundations. We recognize at the same time that its methodology has developed along multiple paths thanks to its constant dialogue with sister disciplines such as linguistics, rhetoric, the philosophy of language, the cognitive sciences, aesthetics, sociology, anthropology and the information and communication sciences.

The journal aims on the one hand to identify the main questions currently explored by the language sciences, and on the other, to structure lines of internationally recognized semiotic research. Without worrying about geographical borders, SIGNATA focuses particular attention on recent discussions about the world of meaning and the processes of signification. At the same time, it proposes to structure these reflections around a set of key concepts and problems, which each issue highlights in such a way as to present a global disciplinary project.
