Call For Papers
Founded in January 2010, AIM – the Portuguese Association of Researchers of the Moving Image aims at gathering scholars and researchers whose common subjects and research themes are related to the moving image; among its goals are the promotion and the discussion of this research in fields such as film archaeology, film, television, video, Internet, new digital media, media literacy, and others.
With this in mind, the I AIM Annual Meeting was hosted by the Algarve University in May 2011, and it included the presentation of more than 80 papers, a workshop and a round-table, and the participation of about 100 scholars.
The Catholic University of Portugal will host the II AIM Annual Meeting in Lisbon, on May 10th, 11th and 12th, in a joint organization of AIM and CECC – the Research Center for Communication and Culture, line of investigation Media, Technology, Contexts (Faculty of Human Sciences, Catholic University of Portugal).
