So fear not if you missed out – as we recorded the conference and you can view the panels here.

This symposium aims to promote interrelationships between disciplines for the study of the image. Concretely, we propose an approach that addresses both the meaning of the image and its cultural function in different contexts, from innovative perspectives.
Papers will be organised in panels, according to common topics or areas of interest. At the end of the workshop, a round table will allow the general discussion and the results will be finalised in a report and through a mindmap, which will contribute in the public debate concerning the topics of the workshop.
