Summer School 2013 is five-day event taking place from August 18 to 23 at the Kääriku Leisure and Sports Center in
Southern Estonia. This year's Summer School is dedicated to the 40th anniversary from the publication of the Theses on the Semiotic Study of Cultures,
which first appeared in 1973.There lies a quintessential coincidence between cultural semiotics, Tartu-Moscow school, and the Theses which
places this triplet amongst both the important and the amusing in the story of humanities. Taking the example of Theses from the past,
and reflecting over it together with its influences across times to today, the semiotic circles might take up reflective autocommunication in
order to set future steps in organising both the paradigm of semiotics and communicate the institution of semiotics to neighbouring paradigms.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Theses on the Semiotic Study of Cultures, we call for reflections on the context and co-texts
leading to and from that milestone in semiotic studies.

Tartu Summer School of Semiotics is a new series of gatherings that brings together representatives of semiotics and related
disciplines with the aim to provide an environment to converse about core issues in semiotics that are of disciplinary as well as
transdisciplinary relevance. It revives the tradition of Kääriku Summer Schools of Semiotics
held by Tartu-Moscow School of Semiotics. As its forerunner, the Tartu Summer School of Semiotics is a gathering that aspires to promote
dialogue between scholars and synthesis between approaches.
