A Research Talk by Camila Escudero.
How do organizations focused on Brazilian and Mexican immigrants in Chicago build and project their hybrid identity through cultural and art forms and which discursive and communicative strategies (media and/or non-media) do they use to express it?
This talk will discuss ongoing research organized around the following goals:
• Identify the organization and structure of the spaces created by Brazilian and Mexican diasporas in the real world and the Internet.
• Explore how these communities build, project and express their hybrid identity through cultural and art forms.
• Analyze the relationship between these organizations and their members with ITCs and how this relationship can translate their hybrid identity and which discursive strategies are utilized in this process.
The presenter is a PhD candidate in the Graduate Program in Social Communication at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) – Brazil. She is conducting field research in Chicago, from July, 2015 to May, 2016 as a visitor in the Latin American and Latino Studies Program of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).
