NASS IX – Tartu 2015

The second call for papers has now appeared – see 2nd Call of Papers – Tartu semiotics summer school. See also accepted session topics (eight sessions). Abstract deadline is March 2nd. For the first call for papers, see here. See also the conference webpage (under University of Tartu´s Department of Semiotics).

The Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies (NASS) has allocated funds for two measures in relation to NASS IX:

  • Graduate student grants: The participation of up to 10 graduate students will be supported financially by NASS, with 150 Euro each. Nominees for student grants will be selected shortly after abstract acceptance, and grant winners will be notified directly. Practicalities concerning transfer of the sum of 150 Euro will be discussed with each successful grant winner.
  • Graduate student prize: A prize will be awarded for the best graduate student presentation at the conference. The prize winner will receive a symbolic premium along with a letter from NASS acknowledging the participant’s merit.

Both measures will be decided on by a NASS committee counting the following members: Luis Emilio Bruni (President of NASS), Morten Tønnessen (Secretary of NASS), Sara Lenninger (Treasurer of NASS) and Inesa Sahakyan (NASS´ Organisational Assistant).
