CECT




Project focuses on the analysis and modelling of autocommunication and self-description phenomena in semiotic systems. These include (1) the role of self-models in assuring the system's integrity; (2) the role of self-description in generation of conflicts. An innovative aspect of the project lies in the extension of cultural semiotic models via inclusion of bio- and ecosemiotic aspects, enabling to further the understanding and explanation of cultural conflicts and mechanisms of cultural equilibrium. This general task will be approached via case studies: (a) typology of autocommunication in the models of translation process; (b) synthesis of Lotman's and Uexküll's autocommunication models; (c) analysis of autometadescription in poetic texts; (d) typology of self-description as related to naming; (e) an integration of biosemiotic and cultural semiotic models in a study of hybrid objects: the case of nature writing; (e) power relations and political communication in case of biopolitics.
