Resumo

Embedded in our efforts to develop a social semiotics for the study of ‘geo-cultural identities’ – i.e., collective identities grounded in a specific geographical materiality or fact – this article presents the theoretical foundations for such an account and, by employing the tool of the semiotic square, proposes an initial typology of the objects of study that it could deal with. After advancing what a semiotic approach to collective identities could look like, the article focuses on the specific case of geo-cultural identities as a distinct subtype of the former and proposes a typology based on the semiotic square. This typology stresses the semantic categories of continuity and discontinuity and is composed of four positions: national, transnational, subnational and supranational identities.
