Here’s PanMeMic – join in
Pandemic Meaning Making of Interaction and Communication
We want to start to make meaning of how communication and social interaction is changing in the global pandemic and understand how this will impact our practices in the future.
What is PanMeMic?
This is a space for collective research, observation and conversation on how communication and social interaction are changing during the global pandemic, to envisage possible futures.
These pandemic times are changing the ways in which we all communicate and interact with others – and this is affecting everybody (similarly and differently) worldwide.
But we still don’t know how exactly this will impact on our future ways of interacting with others.
Who we are
We are a group of semioticians based in different countries worldwide. We study meaning making, communication and social interaction.

What we want to do
We want to join forces with everybody who is interested in how the pandemic is changing our ways of communicating and interacting – to share reflections, observations, fears and good practices – and to try together to envisage where these can lead us in the future.
We want to reflect on and assess these changes, to start thinking about the implications for the future. By mapping what we gain and what we lose in the way we communicate and interact with others, we can trace the opportunities and possibilities as well as the dangers and threats, to try to share and promote good practices and policies, to minimize risks for the future of social interactions, and design new and better futures.
