Semiotics and the visual turn: on the use of images in research
Dr Nick Peim, University of Birmingham

This seminar will explore some principles of semiotics from de Saussure to Derrida to highlight issues relating to questions concerning meaning and interpretation in research. A brief introduction to key ideas will be followed by collective descriptions and analyses of images with consideration given to their potential uses. At stake in all this will be a basic phenomenology of research relations.
