Discourses on Poverty, Marginalization and Vulnerability

Discourses on Poverty, Marginalization and Vulnerability

ACADEMIC PANEL: CROP will co-organise a panel at the annual NOLAN conference 2013 entitled "Latin America: Challenging Frotiers"

28-29 November 2013 | Oslo, Norway

Poverty is an eminently political and moral problem, and not basically an economic one. This poses a moral and a political responsibility to those with power to make a change. In this context, language and media contribute to generate discourses and social representations that produce and reproduce poverty.

The panel will discuss notions of poverty transmitted through media, like:

-How are the notions of poverty conveyed?

-How are the conditions for change conveyed through different types of media?

-What is the language of poverty? What is its narrative?

The panel will also focus on Latin-American agenda-setting media, film and Latin-American Spanish, and examine related forms of social and political marginalization and defenselessness mediated by different types of visual discourses.
