Summary

Critical Global Semiotics: Understanding Sustainable Transformational Citizenship incorporates powerful unifying frameworks which make explicit a developing global consciousness. It explores transdisciplinary ‘common wealth’ through focus on multimodality, media and metaphor, testing two universally-applicable humanitarian frameworks: Critical Realism (CR), and Systemic Functional Semiotics (SFS).

Every day Global Citizens encounter an overwhelming host of genre and sub-genre, emergent semantic triangles, evolving semiotic trinity. Embodying philosophy, incorporating active engagement, this book addresses the political-economy and cultural-politics of diverse domains. Challenging daily drama, performative dharma, twenty-four analysts from thirteen countries present current issues in Anthropology, Architecture, Dance, Feminism, Film, Health, Law, Management, Medicine, Music, Politics, Pharmaceuticals, Sociology, Sustainability Education and Urban Development.

The book’s integrative, unifying foundations will be of interest to researchers, academics and post-graduate students in the fields of linguistics, semiotics and critical realist philosophy, as well as to policy makers, curriculum developers and civil society.
