The Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies (NASS) was founded in 1987 during a meeting in Imatra, Finland, and has as of today arranged eight international conferences. As for the most recent one, see the Call For Papers and Theme Sessions. The Eighth Conference of the Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies, with the theme “Sign Evolution on Multiple Time Scales“, was convened by Kristian Tylén and took place at the Center for Semiotics, University of Aarhus, in Denmark, May 29th – 31st, 2013. See also the board’s associated call for General Assembly.
After a period of hibernation we have refounded NASS as an organization. The board of 2011-2013 approved a new constitution, which was consequently treated at the General Meeting of NASS in Aarhus in May 2013. We have also launched a regular newsletter – four issues have appeared so far (the latest being the Autumn 2013 issue). On June 9th 2012 a 25 year anniversary symposium was arranged in Imatra, Finland, as part of the 27 International Summer School for Semiotic and Structural Studies. The theme of the symposium was Nordic Semiotic Paradigms – NASS 25 years: Where do Cognitive, Bio- and Existential Semiotics Meet?
