Description

The Eighteenth Annual Biosemiotics Gathering, hosted at the University of California at Berkeley by
Terrence Deacon and Yogi Hendlin on behalf of the International Society of
Biosemiotic Studies, June 17-20, 2018.

We have no keynotes, no break-out sessions, no hierarchy--we're a thoroughly rhizomatic organization. This means that everyone gets to participate and each talk builds on the previous one, providing a uniquely rich discursive milieu.

Biosemiotics is, in the words of Jesper Hoffmeyer, “the signs of life and the life of signs.” As an interdisciplinary field, it emerged from the semiotics of Charles S. Peirce, and the theoretical biology of Jakob von Uexküll. It was finally distilled by Thomas Sebeok and many others. This Gathering, now in its eighteenth year, occurs under the auspices of the International Society for Biosemiotic Studies.
