7th SOPHIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

LANDSCAPES OF CARE: THE EMERGENCE OF LANDSCAPES OF CARE IN UNSTABLE TERRITORIES
The current 7th Sophia International Conference, organised by CEAU / FAUP, is the direct result of the Call for Papers of the upcoming 7th issue of Sophia Journal and the first volume within a new cycle of the Sophia Journal dedicated to Landscapes of Care. After a selection of the best papers and visual essays submitted to our Call, the results will be presented during an Online Conference, on the 29th of September, organised in two panels, discussing landscapes of extraction, wastelands, desert landscapes as heritage, geological boundaries and political borders, arctic expeditions, among other stimulating issues central to discuss what we have proposed in our Call. The Online Conference also counts with three presentations by invited keynote speakers: Armin Linke, Marco Ferrari + Elisa Pasqual (Studio Folder), and Elsa Brès. Each presentation is followed by a generous time for discussion between all the participants to fulfil what has been one of the major objectives of these Conferences.

To celebrate the rich and diverse program of the current issue of this year's Sophia International Conference, the organization committee proposes a live screening of films during the afternoon of the 28th of September, followed by a round-table with Margarida Mendes (TBC), Jorge Leandro Rosa, and Pedro Bandeira.
