Call for papers for the special issue of Semiotika (2024) on the semiotics of space

The 2024 special issue of Semiotika aims to expand inquiry into the questions of spatial semiotics within the framework of semiotics of Algirdas Julius Greimas from the ground laid in Baltos lankos (2012, No. 34) and two earlier volumes of Semiotika (2013, 2014). This special issue invites papers that broaden the field of research by including Lotmanian approach to space in the semiotics of culture and, further, investigations that contribute to the spatial turn in postcolonial studies, literary geography and cartography, geocriticism, and literary urbanism.

We welcome papers focused on, but not limited to:

  • Space and spatiality in semiotic and other theories;
  • Research on space and spatiality: methods, challenges and discoveries;
  • Space in literature;
  • Space in visual and plastic arts, music, architecture;
  • Space in new media;
  • Other related topics.

The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2024.
