My Profile and Publications

I am Ruggero Eugeni, a full Professor of Media Semiotics at Catholic University of Milan (Italy).

My interests focus on relations between media and spectators / users. My approach is mainly cultural-semiotic.

I am currently developing a model of analysis of media experience, namely the part of our ordinary and living experience designed and constituted by media devices. From this point of view, I consider media consumption as a form of embodied, embedded and situated experience, and as a network of sensorial, cognitive, emotional and practical activities.

In the My research topics section you will find more information about my scientific  interests.

In the Papers on Media Semiotics section you can find some of my articles in English and other European Languages, documenting my scientific work.

You can also download my curriculum vitae   (not an exciting reading, I Have to admit…) with a complete list of my publications
