Juventude à Margem

Since 1993 the Brazilian Congress has accumulated over 60 proposals aiming punishment for young transgressors. In 2015 the debate about reducing the age of criminal responsibility came again to the Legislative. However, the debate did not examine and clarify the operation of the existing punitive model, which has an educational proposal. Motivated by this underexplored debate, I drew up and published a series of five reports about the tensions related to punishment and accountability of juveniles in conflict with the law.

The influence of knowledge (and power) on communication networks

Considering the changes that language and knowledge have undergone in recent times, this essay proposes to analyze the implications of the following question: to which extend does the Internet contribute to the democratization of the media? Considering its historical development, as well as other means of communication such as radio, telegraph and telephone, we attempt to understand how "modern knowledge" (and some "relations of power") influence on journalism as an important center of intellectual production. Thus, based on a previous study about the implications of the journalistic speech in cyberspace, it´s possible to come back to this question and faces the problematic issues it suggests.

Strategic communication and social mobilization: The experience of young people from the middle Vale do Jequitinhonha in search of the right to the city”

Social mobilization as a process of organization and active participation in issues of collective interest, essentially involves communicative operations - for depending on an intense intersubjective sharing of ideas and values, and also for its potential to call new subjects to join its causes. Based on dates obtained in a research that focuses on the mapping of collectives made up by juveniles between the age of 14 and 25 years from cities in the region of the middle Vale do Jequitinhonha, this essay analyzes the involvement and public expression of juvenile groups on matters of their home cities. Causes proposed by these collectives (institutionalized or not) are investigated and the way these issues receive a public dimension in attempt to produce changes in society.

The resignification of happenings: Corruption in debate

This essay aims to observe how one occurrence can set different happenings, as long as they can be “resignified” for diverse “narrative understandings”. Based on the comments of users of the “Blog do Noblat” about the corruption scandal involving Demóstenes Torres and Carlos Cachoeira, we demonstrate that a text by itself is insufficient to produce a meaning, once every story depends on an external agent who gives life to it: the reader.
