Throughout the academic year, the Center for Latinx Digital Media invites you to a series of weekly seminars held over Zoom on Thursdays. You can now register (click here) to the next seminar of the Fall 2021 quarter, happening next Thursday, November 4 at 12-1 PM US CT. Professor Julieta Brambila (Universidad de las Americas Puebla) will give a presentation entitled “The Journalism Paradox in Mexico.”

Abstract: Mexican journalists are living in a paradox: At the moment in which they enjoy greater professional, political and economic incentives to develop a more critical journalism than before, they face a massive wave of aggressions against them. Using their disposition of cultural, economic and social resources, a generation of resilient newsmakers have been able to develop a set of strategies to resist and confront criminal and political repression, while struggling with new developments in digital online technologies, economic crisis and a transformed professional landscape.

Julieta Brambila (Ph.D. in Communication at the University of Leeds). She is Professor of Communication (in leave) at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla. Currently, she is finishing a book on “How Journalists Manage Risk and Persevere amid Violence and Fear in Mexico” for Columbia University Press. Between 2020 and 2021, she served as Chief of Communication and Spokeswoman for the Minister of Finance in Mexico.

This event is co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Buffett Institute for Global Affairs, the Center for Global Culture and Communication, the Department of Communication Studies, the Department of Radio/Television/Film, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program, and the Latina and Latino Studies Program.
