CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Editions NecPlus


Since 1962, Communication & langages has focused on deciphering fundamental changes in the information and communication sciences. The journal disseminates research results from and analyses by communication specialists in all their forms—mass media, multimedia, advertising, education, graphic design—and takes into account their different dimensions: the imaginary, social, economic, semiotic, and technical. The articles advance a communicative perspective. They cover signs, objects, practices, or communication devices analyzed according to their technical and symbolic, economic and social, semiotic, and political dimensions.
