This is a selection of papers given at a Semiotics Conference sponsored by the Sydney Association for Studies in Society and Culture and held in July 1984 at The Women's College, University of Sydney. The theme of the conference was "Semiotics: Language and Ideology". As editors, we have tried to ensure that this selection is representative of the conference as a whole and that it contains those papers which addressed most directly and productively the questions raised by the Conference theme. As only the second conference to be held in Australia which has focussed specifically on Semiotics. This Conference is of particular interest and requires some contextualisation.
