Description:

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 upcoming seminar of the Spring 2022 quarter, happening on March 31, at 12-1 PM US CT.

Prof. Florencia Enghel (Jönköping University) will give a presentation entitled “Everyday life, gender (in)justice and communicational practices in Argentina: Context, keywords, method and initial findings.”

Abstract: In this presentation I will introduce a project that investigates the everyday communicative practices of Argentinian women for gender justice in the context of digital(ized) citizenship and the COVID-19 pandemic. Via a qualitative approach and a multi-method design, I focus on the micro-technopolitics of women’s everyday activism. Drawing on an online survey and interviews conducted in 2021, I will discuss how women struggle to solve or overcome gender inequality and other dysfunctional/broken elements of democracy.

She specializes in the relationship between communication, citizenship and social change. Since 2015 she serves as a member of IAMCR’s Clearinghouse on Public Statements.
