The Congress, organized by the Laboratory for Landscapes, Heritage and Territory (Lab2PT) of the University of Minho, aims to address Uncertain Landscapes as a conceptual tool to rethink the way of being in the world, break disciplinary boundaries and seek new positions in the present, from the past and towards a more permeable future.
The organisers invite abstract and paper proposals from scholars, professionals, theorists, etc. working in research areas such as architecture, landscape architecture, archaeology, visual arts, design, media and communication studies, history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, history of art, photography, geography, geology, different branches of the natural sciences and any other related research fields.
