Critical Semiotics provides long overdue answers to questions at the junction of information, meaning and 'affect'. The affective turn in cultural studies has received much attention: a focus on the pre-individual bodily forces, linked to automatic responses, which augment or diminish the body's capacity to act or engage with others. In a world dominated by information, how do things that seem to have diminished meaning or even no meaning still have so much power to affect us, or to carry on our ability to affect the world? Linguistics and semiotics have been accused of being adrift from the affective turn and not accounting for these visceral forces beneath or generally other from conscious knowing. In this book, Gary Genosko delivers a detailed refutation, with analyses of specific contributions to critical semiotic approaches to meaning and signification. People want to understand how other people are moved and to understand embodied social actions, feelings and passions at the same time as understanding how this takes place. Semiotics must make the affective turn.

The 15th International ISKO Conference has been held in Porto (Portugal) under the topic Challenges and opportunities for KO in the digital age. ISKO has been organizing biennial international conferences since 1990, in order to promote a space for debate among Knowledge Organization (KO) scholars and practitioners all over the world. The topics under discussion in the 15th International ISKO Conference are intended to cover a wide range of issues that, in a very incisive way, constitute challenges, obstacles and questions in the field of KO, but also highlight ways and open innovative perspectives for this area in a world undergoing constant change, due to the digital revolution that unavoidably moulds our society. Accordingly, the three aggregating themes, chosen to fit the proposals for papers and posters to be submitted, are as follows: 1 – Foundations and methods for KO; 2 – Interoperability towards information access; 3 – Societal challenges in KO. In addition to these themes, the inaugural session includes a keynote speech by Prof. David Bawden of City University London, entitled Supporting truth and promoting understanding: knowledge organization and the curation of the infosphere.

This book examines the semiotic effects of protocols and algorithms at work in popular social media systems, bridging philosophical conversations in human-computer interaction (HCI) and information systems (IS) design with contemporary work in critical media, technology and software studies. Where most research into social media is sociological in scope, Neal Thomas shows how the underlying material-semiotic operations of social media now crucially define what it means to be social in a networked age. He proposes that we consider social media platforms as computational processes of collective individuation that produce, rather than presume, forms of subjectivity and sociality.

This book examines new functional approaches to language and education, and the impact of these on literacy in the classroom. The first section looks at issues of multimodality, in which the definition of a text is expanded to include not only that which is written down, but also the interaction of writing, graphics, and audiovisual material. The contributors explores ways in which language education can be expanded to deal with multimodal discourse, whether in children's books, in textbooks, or on the web. The second section looks at how critical discourse analysis and appraisal theory can be used as tools for assessing the effectiveness of student writing and literacy achievement, and also for helping developing writers to write more successfully. The final section argues that corpus-based studies of language have changed the way we see language, and that the way we teach language should evolve in line with these changes. This appealing survey of new directions in language and education includes contributions from internationally renowned scholars. It will be of interest to researchers in systemic functional linguistics, or language and education.

Der Oscar-prämierte Dokumentarfilm »Searching for Sugar Man« begeisterte Millionen Zuschauer weltweit und rührte Tausende zu Tränen. Die einzigartige Geschichte um die Suche nach dem Folksänger wird in diesem Buch erstmals ausführlich und mit vielen neuen Details von den Protagonisten des Films dargelegt. Der »Dylan aus Detroit« hatte Anfang der Sechziger zwei Studioalben voller poetischer Songs aufgenommen, die von der Kritik hoch gelobt wurden, aber kommerziell floppten. Also hängte der Musiker seine Karriere an den Nagel. Wovon er nichts ahnte: Im Südafrika der Apartheid wurden seine Lieder zu Hymnen der Protestbewegung, der Sänger wurde dort in den Siebzigern zum Star. Die Autoren Craig Strydom und Stephen Segerman machten sich auf die Suche nach Sugar Man – von dem alle dachten, er sei tot. Sie fanden ihn als einfachen Stahlarbeiter in seiner amerikanischen Heimatstadt wieder – und verhalfen ihm damit zu einer späten Karriere als Folk-Superstar.

Christoph Ransmayrs großer Roman ist ein Klassiker der deutschen Gegenwartsliteratur. ›Die letzte Welt‹ ist ein phantastisches Spiel um die Suche nach dem verschollenen römischen Dichter Ovid und einer Abschrift seines Hauptwerks, der legendären ›Metamorphosen‹. Als Christoph Ransmayrs Roman ›Die letzte Welt‹ 1988 erschien, wurde er von der Kritik gefeiert wie kaum ein anderer – wegen seiner poetischen, rhythmischen Sprache, wegen seiner stilistischen Eleganz, auch wegen seiner bildmächtigen Traum- und Albtraumwelten. Er wurde bisher in 29 Sprachen übersetzt. In diesem Roman ist die Verbannung des römischen Dichters Ovid durch Kaiser Augustus im Jahre 8 n. Chr. der historisch fixierte Ausgangspunkt einer phantasievollen Fiktion. Der Römer Cotta, sein – durch Ovids ›Briefe aus der Verbannung‹ – ebenfalls historisch belegter Freund, macht sich in Tomi am Schwarzen Meer auf die Suche: nach dem Verbannten, denn in Rom geht das Gerücht von seinem Tod, als auch nach einer Abschrift der ›Metamorphosen‹, dem legendären Hauptwerk Ovids. Cotta trifft in der »eisernen grauen Stadt« Tomi jedoch nur auf Spuren seines Freundes, Ovid selbst begegnet er nicht. Er findet dessen verfallenes Haus im Gebirge, den greisen Diener Pythagoras und, je komplizierter und aussichtsloser sich die Suche gestaltet, immer rätselhaftere Zeichen der ›Metamorphosen‹ – in Bildern, Figuren, wunderbaren Begebenheiten. Bis sich zuletzt Cotta selbst in der geheimnisvoll unwirklichen Welt der Verwandlungen zu verlieren scheint: die Auflösung dieser »letzten Welt« ist wieder zu Literatur geworden.
