    The Place of Language Among Sign Systems: Juri Lotman and Emile Benveniste.Remo Gramigna - 2013 - Sign Systems Studies 41 (2/3):339-354.
    This paper seeks to shed light on an unwritten chapter in the history of Tartu semiotics, that is, to draw a parallel between Juri Lotman and Emile Benvenisteon the status of natural language among other systems of signs. The tenet that language works as a ‘primary modelling system’ represents one of the trademarksof the Tartu-Moscow school. For Lotman, the primacy assigned to natural language in respect to other systems of signs lied in the fact that the former functions as a (...)

    Faces in Disguise. Masks, Concealment, and Deceit.Remo Gramigna - forthcoming - Topoi.
    The present study investigates and thematizes the interrelation between face masking, concealment, and deceit.
