annotated biblioGraPHY long sources 1. The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life Erving Goffman (1959) Seminal text on identity and our attempts to guide/control impressions other form of us, which Goffman likens to theater performance: identity as storytelling. 2. Mythologies Roland Barthes (1957) Explores Western contemporary social value systems which confer multiple levels of mean- ing upon something such that it becomes a signifier of something other than itself, and can be elevated to myth: social constructions become “naturalised” and are absorbed into base of community assumptions + community as status quo. 3. The Adapted Mind: Evolutionary Psychology and the Generation of Culture Jerome H. Barkow, Leda Cosmides + John Tooby (1992) How social interaction, stratification + culture may have evolved; underlying tenets of cogni- tion may yield deeper understanding of semiotics + behavior. 4. Identity and Spatio-Temporal Continuity David Wiggins (1967) Intricate, hardcore philosophy that was mostly too sophisticated for my logic skills, but Part IV (Self, Body and Spatio-temporal Continuity) provoked contemplation of what happens when the body, memories + identity are separated, i.e., what happens when identity can be projected into non-corporeal space, and is no longer wholly contained within an identified or -fiable body. 5. Snow Crash Neal Stephenson (1992) Entertaining speculative fiction, with several relevant angles: First, it predicts a “Meta- verse,” a technological identity projection as fully realized as the “real” world, in which identities are NOT necessarily concordant with the real-world power/status/influence and thus has fascinating semiotic repercussions. Second, nation-state and clan ties have mostly given way to corporate “claves,” a move that radically alters notions of identity, loyalty and community. 6. The Diamond Age Neal Stephenson (1995) Speculative fiction where futuristic world of highly advanced technology, where a particular well-off segment of the population embraces its conveniences, but also resurrects Victorian manners, dress and ethics, resulting in fascinating hybrid of identities and social mores: are they compatible? can they be paying semiotic lip service to Victoriana without truly assum- ing the identity? 7. The Young Victoria film (2009) Modern depiction of the early reign of Queen Victoria (1819—1901), who represents the nexus of several lines of inquiry: she is of a bygone era, but one that is somehow still alive today in the complex protocols and kinship ties that connect European royalty. She was an icon of the British Empire, yet mostly German and married to a German, thus pulled by various conflicting loyalties (identities). When Prince Consort Albert died, she subsequently wore only black for nearly 40 years, an extreme expression of her long-lived mourning. As well, this film showcases the details of royal dress, titles, coats of arms, crown jewels etc.

which are replete with significance. That these details were meticulously reproduced from history does not remove the extra semiotic layer of being made and shown in modernity: the signs must make sense or be shown to be signifiers to today’s audience. 8. Forms of Address / Royal + Noble Styles / Heraldry (several online sources: Heraldica.com, royalty.co.uk, direct.gov.uk) The monarchy is again a very concrete example of how identity is tied to rank and worth, and the complex codification is a rich with meaning beyond the semantic content. Human interaction and rights to declare kinship and status in the monarchal system is prescribed to the tiniest detail. 9. Material Cultures: Why Some Things Matter ed. Daniel Miller Ethnographic approach to the meaningfulness of objects in different cultures, both in the personal and public spheres, and the global vs local interpretations of meaningful things (also deals with contrasting ideas of modernity.) 10. Folkways: A Study of the Sociological Importance of Usages, Manners, Customs, Mores, and Morals William Graham Sumner (1906) One of the first to identify the discipline of “sociology,” this was one of the first texts to show that “moral” behavior is relative to the customs of a particular society, and that a universal “right” way to act does not exist outside of a set of community assumptions. 11. Uniforms: Why We Are What We Wear Paul Fussell (2002) Historical and contemporary uniforms and their evolution, breaking down several categories of use and meaning inherent in each kind. Most salient to me: the idea of using uniforms and adornment to set one’s self “apart” from the rest of society, the differences between “honorific” and “stigmatic” uniforms, and how pieces can evolve from useful/purposeful to merely symbolic, even being appropriated by other segments as sign only. 12. Semiotics: The Basics Daniel Chandler (2002, rev. 2007) Incredibly helpful primer on the history of semiotics, explicating the two dominent models: Saussurean and Peircean. Helps put each model in modern terms and helps me extrapolate the tenets into real-world application, especially how strucuralism has evolved to incorporate technological advances and new opportunities for signs and signification. Chandler echoes my interest in how identity is projected onto social media and web pages, and also has excel- lent sources for further reading (Claude Lévi-Strauss, Paul Thibault, Roman Jakobson). 13. Real Phonies: Cultures of Authenticity in Post-World War II America Abigail Cheever Primarily concerned with authenticity and the prevalence of concern for phoniness, conformi- ty and uniformity immediately following WWII, but still provides interesting historical context for the evolution of American identity. Uses theocritical methods to examine popular culture (The Catcher in the Rye as interpreted by Sartre, for example) with good nuggets of insight into identity, self-conception and the difference between a “phone” and a “real phony.” 14. The Value of Things Neil Cummings + Marysia Lewandowska Tracing the evolution of museums and department stores, which are theoretically very dif- ferent representations of public regard (academic/historic vs. consumerist), but their tracks have converged markedly, which is quite related to my interest in how we value things: the thing venerated as a representation of self. Part of the appeal of department stores was to make someone feel that they could show status/self through surrounding objects.

15. On Semiosis, Umwelt, and Semiosphere, Semiotica Kalevi Kull Interesting ideas on what constitutes the “world of meaning” (umwelt) of an organism — what is a particular organism affected by and what do they affect? How do umwelts interact when signs conflict? 16. Umwelt, Semiotica John Deely Continues discussion of umwelt, but focuses on the importance of sensation and perception — but emphasizes that “the organism does not simply respond to or act in terms of what it senses as sensed, but rather in terms of what it makes of that sensation.” Thus while making meaning derives from shared experience and judgments in a particular organisms’ world of meaning (i.e., is derived from communal meanings), the aggregate constitutes a wholly unique umwelt.
