In an upcoming lecture, Antoni Castells-Talens, a researcher at Universidad Veracruzana, will explore how Veracruz's community media were forced to learn new ways to operate in this violent atmosphere. His presentation, “Community media and armed violence in Mexico: Challenges and dilemmas in the State of Veracruz,” will take place Tuesday, March 5, from 4-5 p.m. in 203 Becker Communication Studies Building.
Castells-Talens conducts research on indigenous and community media and on everyday forms of nationalism and state formation in Mexico. He is a tenured researcher at Universidad Veracruzana's Centro de Estudios de la Cultura y la Comunicación, and a member of Mexico's Sistema Nacional de Investigadores (SNI).
This lecture is part of the Latin American Studies Seminar and is sponsored by the Latin American Studies Program in International Programs. The event is free and open to the public.
