The 2024 Semiotics Society of America Annual Conference

Theme

The 2024 Semiotics Society of America Annual Conference theme focuses on GeniusLoci, or the “spirit of a place.” This concept, rooted deeply in ancient Roman tradition,refers to the unique, ineffable atmosphere or character of a location, often thought of as its protective spirit or essence. This theme has been selected to highlight and propose remedies for violence and oppression in particular locations within our semiosphere.Scholars are encouraged to suggest measures to protect those who are suffering and oppressed in war-torn regions—changing the essence of the prevailing spirit within these places. Today’s semioticians are drawn to its rich implications in how humans interpret,engage with, and give meaning to specific places. From urban landscapes and sacredsites to virtual spaces in the digital realm, Genius Loci prompts conference participantsto explore the multi-faceted symbols, signs, and narratives that define a place’s identity. In doing so, the conference promises to unravel the intricate interplay between cultural memory, personal experience, and spatial semiotics, deepening our understanding of how places silently communicate and influence human thought and behavior.

2024 年美国符号学学会年会的主题是 GeniusLoci,即 地方的精神。这一概念深深植根于古罗马传统,指的是一个地方独特的、难以言喻的氛围或特征,通常被认为是其保护性精神或本质。从城市景观和圣地到数字领域的虚拟空间,Genius Loci促使与会者探索定义一个地方身份的多层面符号、标志和叙事。在此过程中,会议有望揭开文化记忆、个人经历和空间符号学之间错综复杂的相互作用,加深我们对地方如何悄无声息地交流并影响人类思想和行为的理解。
