Abstract: Over the last 20 years, more than 150 journalists in Mexico have been murdered. In this talk, Dr. Celeste González de Bustamante explains how reporters and editors in Mexico innovate, adapt, and resist constraints in the most dangerous country for journalists in Latin America. She discusses a decade-long study and findings in her recently published book co-authored with Dr. Jeannine E. Relly titled, Surviving Mexico: Resistance and Resilience Among Journalists in the Twenty-first Century.  

Dr. Celeste González de Bustamante directs the Center for Border and Global Journalism at the University of Arizona School of Journalism. She is affiliated with the UA Center for Latin American Studies. Her research focuses on historical and contemporary issues about media in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, Mexico, and other parts of Latin America. Before going into academia, she worked for 15 years as a journalist in commercial and public television.

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.
