Bodies in Time

“Bodies in Time: A Sociosemiotics of Funerary Monuments and Sculpture” (1994 – my Ph.D. thesis) is a historical study of the semiotic modalities of funerary monuments and architecture – and proposes several interpretive approaches to understanding these wonderful artefacts. During the process of research I visited many of the great cemeteries of Western Europe – and here is the visual record of several of the monuments I discuss. One day I’ll get around to putting the text up as well.
