Introduction

Established in 1987 as a research-focused institute under the College of Liberal Arts, the ISS aims to promote the spread of semiotics and to develop it as a new effective methodology for more various and profound explanations of all kinds of social and cultural phenomena, especially in Korea. To meet these purposes, the ISS has collected documents and research on semiotics from all over the world, has conducted various semiotics-related researchers, has held monthly colloquiums and annual symposiums, has translated books of prominent semiotics, and has supported the publication of Semiotic Study, the annual journal of the Semiotic Society of Korea. Many faculty members of the College of Liberal Arts and graduate students are engaged in the ISS, and all the activities of the ISS are performed under close affiliation with the Semiotic Society of Korea.
