Semiotics and volunteerism abounding in the faculty of mass media
In conjunction with this voluntary campaign, the 2nd national forum of semiotics in collaboration with the lingual Iraqis Association was held under the slogan (the semiotic curriculum and prospects for application) within the overall strategy of the college to expand the study of this important science in contemporary research that is marked with modernity and keep up with the tremendous evolution in technology, logic and linguistics. Many literary and cultural personalities participated in this forum such as Prof. Dr. Akil Mahdi, Prof. Dr. Majid al-Mashth and Assistant Prof. Rajaa al-Bhaishin. This forum was launched with a speech delivered by the chairman Prof. Dr. Hashim Hasan al-Tamimi explained that the college is eager to hold such a cultural forum to shed light on semiotics as an old and a modern science at the same time according to Faisal al-Ahmar in his lexicon of semiotic where it is old science in its experiments and modern in its proposals and diversity where the Arabs and Iranians cared for over two thousand years. Semiotics is a tool, a methodology and a philosophy and any attempt to segment it is distorting. The forum included several axes such as image, news, text, and press (approaching semiotics), formats of linguistic markup, semiology of literature and language, semiology of color in the Iraqi press and the semiology of text in Iraq. The college of mass media has sponsored many voluntary campaigns like blood donation, cleaning up parks and colleges and develop utilities, etc. Also it witnessed a lot of scientific seminars, conferences and symposiums. University website team and University channel office accompanied the proceedings of this event and documented it with a number of photos and video scenes.
