Gustavo Azenha - Media, Social Movements, and Citizenship in Brazil
Professor Gustavo Azenha's presentation explores the use of social media and mobile technologies in recent protests and contentious policy debates that have garnered widespread attention and been the focus of intensive new media advocacy activity. The presentation examines the links between “virtual” and “real” social mobilization around pressing socioeconomic issues, as well as the interrelations between emergent forms of asserting citizenship and mobilizing the third sector, with the changing socioeconomic and political landscape of Brazil.
