Networks of Culture

For Professors Winfried Noth (born September 12, 1944) and Otthein Herzog (born September 25, 1944): two pioneers in semiotics and visual information processing

Edited by: Stefan Kramer, Peter Ludes

How can we re-conceptualize culture specific and trans-cultural networks for recent phases of globalization? Which role play visual symbolic networks in historic perspective and in their recent, most prominent example, namely the Olympic Summer Games of Beijing in 2008? Scholars from Brazil, China, India, Israel, Japan, Germany, and the United States, from the humanities and social sciences, have worked together to answer these questions: Networks of Culture, re-loaded, supplement and frame the economic, technological, ecological, and political networks.
