100th anniversary of the birth of Juri Lotman, semiotician, literary scholar and cultural historian (1922-1993). Celebrated in association with UNESCO.

In 2022 we will celebrate the centenary of the birth of Juri Lotman (1922-1993), renowned Russian-Estonian semiotician, literary scholar and cultural historian. Lotman was the professor of Russian literature at the University of Tartu, and one of the founders of the Tartu-Moscow school of semiotics . Together with his colleagues he laid the foundation for a new scientific discipline – semiotics of culture. In 1990 Lotman was elected an academician of semiotics of culture to the Estonian Academy of Sciences. His ideas about the semiosphere, the translatability of culture, semiotic models and the dynamics of culture have influenced the development of the humanities, and are today applied not only in semiotics, but also in art and media studies, educational and social sciences, digital and environmental humanities, and many others.
