Introduction to Biosemiotics and Culture

 

| Open Player in New Window

Wendy Wheeler, Emeritus Professor of Modern British Literature and Cultural Studies, London Metropolitan University, introduces the University of Oregon Conference on Biosemiotics and Culture. This conference, organized by Visiting Professor Wendy Wheeler and Molly Westling, will take place in the Fir Room, EMU, May 3-4. The conference will focus on the cultural dimensions of this new interdisciplinary field that explores meaningful relationships and communication throughout the living world. This communication includes the whole range of behaviors from intracellular code exchanges to interspecies communication and human language and culture. This new field has enormous potential for reintegrating cultural studies with the life sciences and opening new perspectives on the evolution of language and the arts. “Biosemiotics and Culture” will be the first such conference in the United States.
