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 first seminar of the Spring 2022 quarter, happening on March 24, at 12-1 PM US CT.

Prof. César Jiménez‑Martínez (Cardiff University) will give a presentation entitled “Mediated nationhood: Constructing, commercialising and contesting the nation in the media.”

Abstract: This is a Janus-faced presentation: it summarises past and hopefully future research. Drawing on examples from Brazil and Chile, I will look at the struggles over the mediated image of the nation at times of social unrest. But I will also outline some ideas about the coverage of violence at times of protest, suggesting that the latter can be an instrument with the potential to be strategically exploited for diverse political, ideological, and commercial purposes.

César Jiménez‑Martínez is Lecturer in Global Media and Communications at Cardiff University. His research focuses on mediated nationhood, protest and violence, visibility, journalism, nation branding and public diplomacy. He is the author of the monograph Media and the Image of the Nation during Brazil’s 2013 Protests (2020, Palgrave Macmillan).

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, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program.
