2016 Argentina and Brazil videos


Video presentations from our two 2016 public events dedicated to Argentina and Brazil are now available. In our first seminar titled Media monopolies and political power in Latin America: The case of Argentina, we discussed the latest developments in that country and reflected on the role played by mass media conglomerates. We showed a special video interview for Latitudes with Pedro Rubén Brieger, a prestigious Argentine journalist and sociologist. In the second event, Public forum: Political crisis in Brazil, organized by Latitudes, the Latin American Social Forum Sydney and the Socialist Alliance, Dr Fernando López moderated and introduced the forum with a presentation called Media and political power in Brazil: the making of a coup. Pedro Ivo Carneiro Teixeirense, researcher and PhD Candidate in Social History at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, sent a special presentation about the crisis in his country.
