Media and Mobilization in Brazil: Media Practices at the Intersection between Technology and Politics

Dr. Paola Sartoretto, Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication
Department of Media and Communication, Södertörn University, Sweden

Drawing on the experiences of two progressive Brazilian social movements, the Landless Workers Movement (Movimento Sem-Terra) and the youth movement Levante Popular da Juventude, Dr. Paola Sarteretto will reflect on the experiences of marginalized groups with media.  Explore how media practices emerge and change in connection to new technologies, the relation between these technologies and processes of cultural change within the movements, and the mediation between technologies and politics.  Engage in a North-South dialogue about the diverse media practices and experiences of activists and collective social actors in different areas of the world.
