01. FOCUS AND SCOPE

scopio Sophia collection is specifically designed to address theoretical work, and it aims to be the publishing medium for a set of exploratory and critical texts on image in the broad sense, i.e. comprehending the worlds of design, photography, film, video, television and new media.
The etymology of the word “sophia” is closely linked to the concepts of sapience and wisdom: (Greek Σοφία, “sofía”) it is what the “wise person” has, and this word is also derived from philo+sophia (“love of wisdom”). We are interested in making scopio Sophia a mentis instrumenta capable of extending our critical knowledge and questioning the universe of image in an innovative way.
The purpose of scopio Sophia collection is to publish a set of theoretical and critical texts on image in book format; these texts can either be taken from sections of scopio magazine or submitted by new authors and other R & D national and international centers, through a call for papers. The aim is to challenge different artists and creators to publish original articles, reviews, book reviews and other texts of interest and value to this collection.

SCOPIO Sophia publishes one issue a year in five languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian.

02. AUTHOR GUIDELINES

Theme

The global theme for this 1ª issue of scopio Sophia collection: January – December 2014

Crossing Borders and Shifting Boundaries

Crossing Borders and Shifting Boundaries is the global theme addressing theoretical work that explores how image in the broad sense, i.e. comprehending how the worlds of photography, film, video, television and new media, works as an object of though, in Walter Benjamin’s sense, and as an object in itself that interacts with the world without other intermediations, in Susan Sontag’s or Rolland Barth’s sense). In this way, scopio Sophia wants to contribute to redefine the borders of the diverse worlds that think or use image and photography significantly as happens in visual, performing and the literary arts, taking its readers in the freshest directions: from architecture to philosophy, painting to performance, from photography to video or film.
Thus, we are interested in receiving diverse texts thinking on how photography and image can be used for understanding critically the set of issues around the main theme of Crossing Borders and Shifting boundaries.

SCOPIO Editorial Line is integrated and giving support to the International Seminar ON THE SURFACE: Photography and Architecture - Crossing Borders and Shifting Boundaries, which means, in this case, that some presented abstracts could be invited to integrate the seminar that will be held in Porto at the end of 2014.
