The Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies (NASS) was founded in 1987 during a meeting in Imatra, Finland, and has as of today arranged seven international conferences – the eighth is currently in preparation. A First Call For Papers and Theme Sessions has been announced – and a preliminary program published in the latest newsletter. The Eighth Conference of the Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies, with the theme “Sign Evolution on Multiple Time Scales“, is convened by Kristian Tylén and will take place at the Center for Semiotics, University of Aarhus, in Denmark, May 29th – 31st, 2013. See also the board’s call for General Assembly.
After a period of hibernation we are now in the process of refounding NASS as an organization – the current board has approved a new constitution, which will be treated at the next General Meeting of NASS in Aarhus in May 2013. We have also launched a regular newsletter, three issues have appeared so far (the latest being the Spring 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?
