CICANT’S RESEARCHER WINS COMPETITION FOR SOPCOM ISSUES
The book organized by the CICANT’s researcher Manuel Bogalheiro (FCAATI – ULP), Criticism of Total Mediations – For an expanded notion of media, won the SOPCOM Books Collection Award, an initiative designed to support the publication of collective volumes in the area of Communication Sciences.
The work will soon be published under the seal of Documenta. In addition to the CICANT’s researchers José Gomes Pinto, Luís Cláudio Ribeiro and Manuel Bogalheiro, the publication has texts by Hermínio Martins, José Bragança de Miranda, João Ribas, Aida Castro, Catarino Patrício, Luís Mendonça and Carlos Natálio. Contributions comprise a broad field of media theory – from the philosophy of technique and the device to the problems of nature and metaphysics – seeking to provide a current picture of the expansions and ambiguities of the concept of media.
