I am a
visual semiotician based in the
Department of Theatre, Film & Television Studies of
Aberystwyth University. I am a lecturer in
Media and Communication Studies (a scheme I established here) and
webmaster of the
Media and Communication Studies Site.
I'm also a member of the
Virtual Faculty and the
Advertising Education Forum. The
second edition of my book Semiotics: The Basics was published by
in January 2007. The
Dictionary of Media and Communication, compiled with Rod Munday, was published by Oxford University Press in February 2011 (and has already been reprinted 4 times!).
