Semiotics of Economic Discourse


This special issue of Ocula on economic discourse we would like to be a first and pioneering work on semiotic studies and analysis of economy. Our aims are to fill a gap in semiotic literature, to carry out a reconnaissance on this field and to collect semiotic contributions opening to some ways of semiotic investigations on economy. There is not currently a systematic and specific work on economic discourse in the semiotic literature. We think that the economic discourse is a special field for the semiotic interdisciplinarity analysing historical and specially present economic conditions.
Contributors to this Issue: Tiziana Barone, Mirko Benedetti, Cinzia Bianchi, Vander Casaqui, Cinzia Castagnaro, Giorgio Coratelli, Francesco Galofaro, Bernard Lamizet, Federico Montanari, Roberto Pellerey, Paolo Sorrentino, Christelle Verger de Oliveira, Cristina Zorzella Cappi.
