Researchers from European countries and abroad are kindly invited to take part in the 2014 international research conference METAMIND’2014 The Order in Destruction and the Chaos of Order. Freedom. The international research arts project MetaMind highlights innovative interdisciplinary approaches to the theoretical, artistic, and social aspects of Western culture. Interplays of science, art, and other forms of human creativity figure prominently in this venture. The conference is organized by Foundation MetaMind, in cooperation with several Latvian institutions of higher education. It will take place September 25 – 28, 2014 in the brand new building of the National Library of Latvia and in Campenhausen’s Manor house. This is already the fifth conference of the project, and this year it will be part of the events scheduled in Riga as 2014 European Capital of Culture.

The official languages of the conference are English, French, German, Spanish and Latvian, and simultaneous translation will be provided. The proceedings of the conference will be published in English in an edited volume.

 

Freedom

In the centenary of World War I, which both ruined Europe and let it revive, as well as made the birth of Latvia possible, MetaMind is dedicated to the handicap of chaos and the potential of order destruction, with special attention to the pre-programmed and pre-constructed nature of changes, destruction, and chaos in the space of European thought and being. The processes concerning order and disorder as well as the axiological potential of both constellations deserve equal attention.  The theoretical topicality of the theme is underpinned by the fact that our key value freedom with all its countless faces also resides in the destructiveness hidden in order and in the orderliness of chaos.

 

 

The  Order in Destruction and the Chaos of Order

Order and chaos are not phenomena that have existed in the world from the very beginning. Since the time of Ancient Greece, they have served as two thought constructions referring to the world and the states of its existence. Chaos is the prime matter of the world, its original potential and infinite, dark world abyss – open primordial space, depth first of all. Cosmos as a natural philosophical concept was contrasted with chaos, implying decoration, arrangement, and splendor – surface first of all.

A similar configuration can be found in the Biblical tradition, where chaos as darkness and spatial indefiniteness imply a potential for orderliness. However, when orderliness emerges, chaos does not cease to exist.

Over the years, both chaos and order have been constitutive concepts not only for the understanding of the universe, but also for each of its elements and processes. Actually, the history of Western thought conserves them as opposite, mutually exclusive states. However, already in the myths of ancient cosmogonies they determined each other as elements of one construction. Thus, transition from one state to the other as well as the necessity for the alteration of these states is programmed into them.  Chaos is a “spin-off” created by culture and married to order – it can be viewed as the process of “unfolding” order, just as insanity is a kind of sanity or silence is a form of sound. To put it simply, chaos is a different kind of order.

Primary thought concerning chaos and order prestructures their later use in the national strategies of different complexity, where order starts with arrangement. Arrangement in its ontic sense results from deliberate relational structuring of objects and events.  All schemes of rationality require transparency and succession. Arrangement, first and foremost, means to begin from something, to turn to the beginning, to some source; it acquires the modalities of the beginning of some particular world and temporality. The source becomes the guarantor of order although it is just one type of order. It is supplemented by the principle of logos, which is articulated as naming in its more modern version. The model version of naming as the origin of order was given by Genesis in the Old Testament. The performative utterance of the creator, “let there be…”, resulted in the production of real phenomena, where a-spatial chaos transformed into ordered spatial division. The demand for harmony coming from Pythagoreanism insists on clothing order in a mathematical outfit, and the latter has to refer to the universe as a whole.

The reduction of musical intervals to the mathematical ratio, which has been attributed  to Pythagoras, an apparently non-existent authority but the one confirming the legitimacy of the idea, had a most consequential impact both on Greek philosophy and the development of Western culture.   The number (arithmos) has become the constitutive principle of all things.  All the phenomena that are used in accordance with the numerical principle create a new atemporal reality. Within the context of the conference, World War I has to be mentioned, which started the period of the potential  war reality.

Chaos has been played anew in modern scientific, poetic, and artistic languages. On the one hand, these are negative forms rejecting the old; on the other hand, the old fills the new with content and makes it meaningful. The given contradiction goes through two phases: 1) the destruction of the old for the sake of the new order, 2) the destruction of the new order due to its excessive orderliness. The role of rubble in the deliberate creation of meaning as the orderability of significance was understood by such antagonists as the surrealists and classical Marxism. Frequently, the aim of rubble practice in the 20th century was to verify the legitimacy of existing knowledge.

However, the features of order and chaos can be traced not only in modern languages, but also in the disciplines of scientific and technological thought, which have often been constructed as a modelling of the deviations from the norm, as a certain anti-world.  One may think here of medicine, forensic science, law, some political theories, and military practices. In the training of medical professionals, the point of departure is not the healthy body and spirit, but various potential functional disorders – unhealthiness and sickliness. The designation of deviations is also symptomatic – “something is out of order”, i.e., out of the right system.

For instance, the treatment of mental disorders demonstrates the breakout of chaos, whereasin its ancient mythological understanding it is the deepest layer, to the surface – the surface of mental clarity. Thus, the reconstruction of consciousness is possible on the rubble of subconsciousness.

Legal orders, on the other hand, provide for all the possible deviations from the norm and all the aggravating and mitigating circumstances of the offence.  In the practice of legal languages, which envisage the order through which punishment is imposed on the offender of social order, the point of departure for all the arrangement is the provision for all the possible transgressions of law which have to be applied according to the algorithm: if…, then… .

Political destruction as a new condition for the world order was once demonstrated in the practice of the Great French Revolution, while Karl Marx, formative thinker of revolutionary catastrophism, presumes the dominance of two dual impulses – order and disorder.  Order, which manifests itself in the form of a socio-economic formation, is always determined by pre-occuring revolutionary chaos, whereas any new order that is built on the rubble of the previous one immanently presupposes self-negation and self-destruction, which will result in a new revolution.

Interestingly, the modelling of these transitions perfectly corresponds to the understanding of chaos in Ancient Greece – as an empty, obscure abyss between spaces. Thus, world order refers to the arrangement of two distinct separate orders.

The division of chaos and order is everything but clear and unambiguous.

Due to various adopted prejudices or ethical considerations, we live with a complex of untouchable themes, untouched so far or cut out of the cultural historical context, concerning both older and more recent history of Europe. In the recent past, phenomena can be found where rationality beyond the control of reason has reached its utmost, sometimes even perverse limits. This could be seen in different models of social cleansing elaborated by various totalitarian regimes.

Finally, another difficulty arises which prevents the thematization of chaos and order: namely, the word chaos travels from one language to another with little or no  translation, whereas order or cosmos – just partly so, since there also exist its Latin form and translations. As a result, the notion of order turns diffuse. Cosmos or order modifies into various other forms, which, for instance, can be seen in the rich variety of forms this word has in the Latvian language: kārtot, sakārtot, piekārtot, pārkārtot, uzkārtot, aizkārtot, nokārtot, iekārtot, izkārtot, sakārtot.

 

In view of the preceding considerations, we invite you to consider the overall theme of MetaMind’2014 when planning your contribution focusing on the following topics: 

  1. Mathematical and musical rationality.
  2. Versions of linguistic ordering.
  3. The ordering of knowledge.
  4. Modelling of disorder or catastrophes as strategies for maintaining thoughts of order.
  5. Tabooised orders of chaos.
  6. New artistic normativities.
  7. Different kinds of order.

12th World congress of IASS/IAS – Sofia, 16-20 September 2014, New Bulgarian University

12th World congress of IASS/IAS

“New Semiotics: between Tradition and Innovation”

Sofia, 16-20 September 2014, New Bulgarian University

www.semio2014.org

 

The registration form for the congress is now available.  

This is the first call for papers of the 12th World Congress of the International Association of Semiotics

The strategic objective of this Congress is the expansion and reinforcement of the semiotic web. The Congress will not only attract the leading figures in contemporary semiotics but will, with Sofia as host city, provide exceptionally favourable conditions for wide participation. These include a specially organized low fee, comfortable budget accommodation and excellent organization.

“Innovation” is not only a theme from the title but also informs the organization of the Congress. The Congress will be preceded by a broad discussion on social media so as to enable participants to select the most interesting topics and facilitators for scientific sessions and round tables. This will also provide an opportunity to highlight the profile of new semiotics – that which constantly occurs on separate sites but which today needs to be strengthened by common formulations and a common strategy, new tactics for the affirmation of this disciplinary field both in the new academic realities and outside the university, in the labour market and the market of research services. New semiotics is thus global, project-oriented, and focused on its contribution to human endeavour within the flexible boundaries of interdisciplinarity.

Mirroring the innovations of semiotics, New Bulgarian University, the host of the Congress, was founded by a mandate of the Bulgarian Parliament in 1991 and is the largest private university in the country today. It is the host of the South-East European Center for Semiotic Studies (the organizer of the famous Early Fall School of Semiotics since 1995) and is the university which introduced and continues to be the seat of the major innovations in Bulgarian academia.

At a time of challenge for the university as an institution, for the humanities, as well as for culture as a whole, “New Semiotics: between Tradition and Innovation” has two main aims. It aims to facilitate presentations of cutting-edge research and it aims to seize the opportunity to demonstrate to the global community the central role that semiotics will continue to play in the analysis of life in contemporary societies.

The main directions reflecting the current state of the discipline are listed below. Papers for the Congress will present research that sits within the framework of any of those main directions (or, possibly, sits within emergent directions). You are invited to take part in the preliminary discussions by way of social media and to propose topics for the roundtables and study sessions. Please follow this link to participate to the discussions:

At the conclusion of these discussions, specific sessions and roundtables will be set up and abstracts will then be invited. All abstracts will be peer reviewed.

The main directions for discussion are:

Theoretical Semiotics
– Semiotic Epistemology
– Visual Semiotics
– Cognitive Semiotics

12ème congrès Mondial de l’IASS/IAS

“la Nouvelle Sémiotique: entre tradition et innovation”,

Sofia, le 16-20 septembre 2014, Nouvelle Université Bulgare

Ceci est le premier appel à communications pour le 12ème Congrès mondial de l’Association Internationale de Sémiotique. L’objectif stratégique de ce congrès est l’expansion et le renforcement du réseau sémiotique. Le Congrès n’attirera pas seulement les personnalités de la sémiotique contemporaine mais assurera, Sofia étant la ville hôte, des conditions exceptionnellement favorables pour une participation extensive, en offrant des tarifs spécialement bas, une excellente organisation et des logements confortables.

Ce terme d’« Innovation » n’est pas seulement un mot du titre, mais c’est aussi la ligne directrice de l’organisation du Congrès. Le Congrès sera précédé par une large discussion dans les médias sociaux afin de permettre aux divers participants de mieux choisir les sujets et les animateurs les plus intéressants pour les sessions scientifiques et tables rondes.

Cela permettra également de mettre en évidence le profil de la nouvelle sémiotique – ce qui se produit constamment sur les sites séparés, mais qui doit aujourd’hui être renforcé par des formulations communes et  par une stratégie commune, une nouvelle tactique pour l’affirmation de ce champ disciplinaire tant dans les nouvelles réalités académiques qu’à l’extérieur de l’université, sur le marché du travail et sur le marché de services de recherche. La nouvelle sémiotique est ainsi globale, orientée vers de vrais projets, concentrée sur sa contribution à la connaissance et à l’action humaines, dans les limites flexibles de l’interdisciplinarité.

En reflétant les innovations de la sémiotique, la Nouvelle Université Bulgare,  l’hôte du Congrès, a été fondée selon un mandat du parlement bulgare en 1991. Elle est la plus grande université privée en Bulgarie aujourd’hui. Elle est l’hôte du Centre Européen du Sud-Est pour les Études Sémiotiques (l’organisateur de la fameuse Early Fall School of Semiotics depuis 1995) et elle est l’université ayant introduit, et continuant d’être le lieu, d’innovations importantes dans le milieu académique bulgare.

En ce moment de défi pour l’université en tant qu’institution, pour les humanités, aussi bien que pour la culture dans son ensemble, “la Nouvelle Sémiotique : entre la Tradition et l’Innovation” a deux buts principaux:

– faciliter les présentations des recherches les plus “à la pointe”

– saisir l’opportunité de démontrer à la communauté globale le rôle central que la sémiotique continuera de jouer dans l’analyse de la vie dans les sociétés contemporaines.

Les principales directions de recherche reflétant l’état actuel de la discipline sont énumérées ci-dessous. Les contributions au Congrès sont invitées à investir n’importe laquelle de ces directions principales de la recherche  comme d’ailleurs  les directions émergentes qui ne figureraient pas sur cette liste.

Vous êtes invités à prendre part aux discussions préliminaires par voie des médias sociaux et  à proposer des thèmes pour les sessions d’étude et les tables rondes. Suivez s’il vous plaît les liens suivants pour participer :

12 Congreso Mundial de la IASS/AIS.

“Nueva Semiótica: entre tradición e innovación”

Sofia, del 16 al 20 de septiembre de 2014, New Bulgarian University

Esta es la primera llamada para presentar Comunicaciones al XII Congreso Mundial de la

Asociación Internacional de Semiótica (IASS/AIS).

El objetivo estratégico de este Congreso es la expansión y el reforzamiento de la red semiótica. El Congreso no atraerá solamente a las personalidades de la semiótica contemporánea sino que además garantizará, siendo Sofía la ciudad anfitriona, condiciones excepcionalmente favorables para una extensa participación, ofreciendo tasas de inscripción especialmente bajas, alojamientos confortables y una excelente organización.

El término “Innovación” no es solamente un tema evocado en el título, sino también la línea directriz de organización del Congreso, el cual será precedido por una extensa discusión en las redes sociales a fin de permitir a los diversos participantes elegir los mejores temas y los centros de interés para las sesiones científicas y las mesas redondas.

Esto permitirá igualmente poner en evidencia el perfil de la nueva semiótica, lo que se produce constantemente en lugares alejados, pero que hoy debe ser puesto en evidencia mediante formulaciones comunes y estrategias comunes, una nueva táctica para la afirmación de este campo disciplinar tanto en las nuevas realidades académicas como en el exterior de la Universidad, en el mercado de trabajo y en el ámbito de los servicios de investigación. La nueva semiótica debe ser de este modo global, orientada hacia verdaderos proyectos, centrada en su contribución al conocimiento humano, en los límites flexibles de la interdisciplinariedad.

Trataremos de reflejar las innovaciones de la semiótica, en el seno de la New Bulgarian University, la anfitriona del Congreso, fundada según un mandato del Parlamento búlgaro en 1991, en nuestros días la mayor Universidad privada de Bulgaria. La Universidad alberga el Southeast European Center for Semiotic Studies, organizador de la famosa Early Fall School of Semiotics desde 1995 y es la institución universitaria que ha introducido las más importantes innovaciones en el medio académico búlgaro.

En este momento de desafío de la Universidad en tanto que institución, tanto para las humanidades como para la cultura en general, “La Nueva Semiótica: entre la Tradición y la Innovación” tiene dos objetivos principales:

– Facilitar la presentación de las investigaciones más punteras

– Aprovechar la oportunidad de demostrar a la comunidad internacional global el papel central que la semiótica continuará jugando en el análisis de la vida en las sociedades contemporáneas.

Las principales direcciones de investigación que reflejan el estado actual de la disciplina son enumeradas más abajo. Las contribuciones al Congreso pueden abordar tanto cualquiera de estas direcciones principales de investigación, como otras líneas emergentes que no figuran en esta lista.

Theme of the conference: Establishing Cognitive Semiotics
Over the past two decades or so, a number of researchers from semiotics, linguistics, cognitive science and related fields, from several European and North American research centres, have experienced the needs to combine theoretical knowledge and methodological expertise in order to be able to tackle challenging
questions concerning the nature of meaning, the role of consciousness, the unique cognitive features of mankind, the interaction of nature and nurture in development, and the interplay of biological and cultural evolution in phylogeny. The product of these collaborations has been the emergence of the field of Cognitive Semiotics, with its own journal (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/cogsem) and academic association. The conference aims both to celebrate this, and to look forward into possibilities for further development.

We invite the submission of 400 word abstracts (excluding title and references) for one of the three following categories :
1. Oral presentations (20 min presentation + 5 minute discussion), to be submitted at the site of the conference.
2. Posters (at a dedicated poster session), to be submitted at the site of the conference.
3. Theme sessions (3 to 6 thematically linked oral presentations.)
Such proposals are to include: (a) Title of proposed session, (b) name(s) of convener(s), (c) max 400 word motivation of the session, (d) abstracts for 3 to 6 individual papers, (e) name of discussant – if such is involved. All this information should be sent TOGETHER to the conference organizers at iacs-2014@semiotik.lu.se

The individual abstracts should be preceded by an abstract for the theme session as a whole. In case the theme session is not accepted, individual abstracts will be reviewed as submissions for oral presentations.).

12th World congress of IASS/IAS – Sofia, 16-20 September 2014, New Bulgarian University

Korica_FB_en_bez

12th World congress of IASS/IAS

“New Semiotics: between Tradition and Innovation”

Sofia, 16-20 September 2014, New Bulgarian University

www.semio2014.org

The registration form for the congress is now available.  

This is the first call for papers of the 12th World Congress of the International Association of Semiotics

The strategic objective of this Congress is the expansion and reinforcement of the semiotic web. The Congress will not only attract the leading figures in contemporary semiotics but will, with Sofia as host city, provide exceptionally favourable conditions for wide participation. These include a specially organized low fee, comfortable budget accommodation and excellent organization.

“Innovation” is not only a theme from the title but also informs the organization of the Congress. The Congress will be preceded by a broad discussion on social media so as to enable participants to select the most interesting topics and facilitators for scientific sessions and round tables. This will also provide an opportunity to highlight the profile of new semiotics – that which constantly occurs on separate sites but which today needs to be strengthened by common formulations and a common strategy, new tactics for the affirmation of this disciplinary field both in the new academic realities and outside the university, in the labour market and the market of research services. New semiotics is thus global, project-oriented, and focused on its contribution to human endeavour within the flexible boundaries of interdisciplinarity.

Mirroring the innovations of semiotics, New Bulgarian University, the host of the Congress, was founded by a mandate of the Bulgarian Parliament in 1991 and is the largest private university in the country today. It is the host of the South-East European Center for Semiotic Studies (the organizer of the famous Early Fall School of Semiotics since 1995) and is the university which introduced and continues to be the seat of the major innovations in Bulgarian academia.

At a time of challenge for the university as an institution, for the humanities, as well as for culture as a whole, “New Semiotics: between Tradition and Innovation” has two main aims. It aims to facilitate presentations of cutting-edge research and it aims to seize the opportunity to demonstrate to the global community the central role that semiotics will continue to play in the analysis of life in contemporary societies.

The main directions reflecting the current state of the discipline are listed below. Papers for the Congress will present research that sits within the framework of any of those main directions (or, possibly, sits within emergent directions). You are invited to take part in the preliminary discussions by way of social media and to propose topics for the roundtables and study sessions. Please follow this link to participate to the discussions:

12ème congrès Mondial de l’IASS/IAS

“la Nouvelle Sémiotique: entre tradition et innovation”,

Sofia, le 16-20 septembre 2014, Nouvelle Université Bulgare

Ceci est le premier appel à communications pour le 12ème Congrès mondial de l’Association Internationale de Sémiotique. L’objectif stratégique de ce congrès est l’expansion et le renforcement du réseau sémiotique. Le Congrès n’attirera pas seulement les personnalités de la sémiotique contemporaine mais assurera, Sofia étant la ville hôte, des conditions exceptionnellement favorables pour une participation extensive, en offrant des tarifs spécialement bas, une excellente organisation et des logements confortables.

Ce terme d’« Innovation » n’est pas seulement un mot du titre, mais c’est aussi la ligne directrice de l’organisation du Congrès. Le Congrès sera précédé par une large discussion dans les médias sociaux afin de permettre aux divers participants de mieux choisir les sujets et les animateurs les plus intéressants pour les sessions scientifiques et tables rondes.

Cela permettra également de mettre en évidence le profil de la nouvelle sémiotique – ce qui se produit constamment sur les sites séparés, mais qui doit aujourd’hui être renforcé par des formulations communes et  par une stratégie commune, une nouvelle tactique pour l’affirmation de ce champ disciplinaire tant dans les nouvelles réalités académiques qu’à l’extérieur de l’université, sur le marché du travail et sur le marché de services de recherche. La nouvelle sémiotique est ainsi globale, orientée vers de vrais projets, concentrée sur sa contribution à la connaissance et à l’action humaines, dans les limites flexibles de l’interdisciplinarité.

En reflétant les innovations de la sémiotique, la Nouvelle Université Bulgare,  l’hôte du Congrès, a été fondée selon un mandat du parlement bulgare en 1991. Elle est la plus grande université privée en Bulgarie aujourd’hui. Elle est l’hôte du Centre Européen du Sud-Est pour les Études Sémiotiques (l’organisateur de la fameuse Early Fall School of Semiotics depuis 1995) et elle est l’université ayant introduit, et continuant d’être le lieu, d’innovations importantes dans le milieu académique bulgare.

En ce moment de défi pour l’université en tant qu’institution, pour les humanités, aussi bien que pour la culture dans son ensemble, “la Nouvelle Sémiotique : entre la Tradition et l’Innovation” a deux buts principaux:

– faciliter les présentations des recherches les plus “à la pointe”

– saisir l’opportunité de démontrer à la communauté globale le rôle central que la sémiotique continuera de jouer dans l’analyse de la vie dans les sociétés contemporaines.

Les principales directions de recherche reflétant l’état actuel de la discipline sont énumérées ci-dessous. Les contributions au Congrès sont invitées à investir n’importe laquelle de ces directions principales de la recherche  comme d’ailleurs  les directions émergentes qui ne figureraient pas sur cette liste.

Vous êtes invités à prendre part aux discussions préliminaires par voie des médias sociaux et  à proposer des thèmes pour les sessions d’étude et les tables rondes. Suivez s’il vous plaît les liens suivants pour participer :
