I am Professor of Semiotics at Lund University, where I direct the Semiotics Seminar since 1986, and head of the Centre for cognitive semiotics, starting in 2009. I am the initiator of the doctorate in semiotics at Lund University which formally begun its existence in 1998.

I was the first president of the Swedish Society for Semiotic Studies (sffs) and president of the Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies (NASS) 1992-2012, as well as Secretary General of the International Association for Visual Semiotics (IAVS/AISV) since 2001.

I hold a doctorate in general linguistics from Lund University, and a doctorate in semiotics from École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. From 1974 to 1981, I was a member of the Groupe de recherches sémio-linguistiques, directed by A.J. Greimas, where I headed a section concerned with gestures. Between 1981 and 1982, I conducted research in semiotics and linguistics in Mexico, particularly as applied to Mayan languages and culture.
