More About the Author
I lecture on Media and Communication in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University, where I have been based since 1989. My best-known publication is Semiotics: The Basics (Routledge: 1st edn. 2002, 2nd edn. 2007), which has become an international academic bestseller and is set reading for countless university courses. More recently, I co-authored (with Rod Munday) the Dictionary of Media and Communication (Oxford University Press, 2011) of which Professor Laurie Taylor (BBC Radio 4) declared: 'How on Earth have I managed for so long without having such a volume?'.
