Thomas Broden

Please join me in congratulating Thomas Broden, professor of French in the School of Languages and Cultures, on co-editing two special issues of a peer-reviewed international journal, Semiotica: Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies / Revue de l’Association Internationale de Sémiotique (Berlin: De Gruyter)

The two bilingual English-French issues, co-edited with colleague Stéphanie Walsh Matthews, are entitled: A. J. Greimas—Life and Semiotics / La vie et la Sémiotique d’A. J. Greimas (February 2017), and La Sémiotique Post-Greimassienne / Semiotics Post-Greimas (November 2017). The volumes honor the French-language linguist and semiotician Algirdas Julien Greimas (1917-1992) on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth. 

Tom held a year-long National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship in 2011, and the French government inducted him as a Knight in the Order of the Palmes Académiques in April of 2006. 

Congratulations, Professor Broden!
