    • La vida social de las imágenes. Una antropología posestructural de los mundos audiovisuales

      Sánchez Dávila, Mario Elmer (Universidad Nacional de La Plata, 2016-12)
      This paper proposes to build a post-structural anthropological theoretical framework to analyze the audiovisual worlds in a critical way; for producers and consumers to analyze the ideological discourses used to construct visual representations of us, others and the world in order to negotiate positions of power and contextual relationships of domination and oppression among social actors.
