Global South Intersemiotic Research Project (GSIRP)

Based at the University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, the Global South Intersemiotic Research Project is a new research group borne of the collaboration between researchers in the areas of translation studies, cultural semiotics, linguistics, and development.

Its main objectives are to promote multidisciplinary collaboration on intersemiotic research in South Africa, the Global South regions and the world, and to disseminate reflection about the plural geographical, political, linguistic and semiotic locus that is the Global South.

The work of the Project supports comparative approaches, especially along the following axes:

    New developments in semiotics (cognitive semiotics, biosemiotics, semioethics); comparative semiotics (debates in progress); exploration of frameworks for semiotics in the Global South
    Interface of semiotics and translation; intersemiotic translation; translation theory; translation practice; history of translation
    Metaphor; multimodalities; new media and communications; image and semiotics of the body
