    "Media activism in times of perplexity: actions and strategies of resistance during the 2018 Brazilian presidential elections"

    Higher seminar in Media and communication studies with Isabel Löfgren.

    The 2018 presidential elections in Brazil have been marked by extreme polarization in Brazilian society leading to the election of extreme right candidate Jair Bolsonaro. Leading up to the election, several social groups, artists, and citizens created campaigns of resistance and popular mobilizations in opposition to the winning candidate. The campaign process has also been marked by a high mobilization via social media on all sides of the political spectrum, and underscores the relevance of media studies in understanding power shifts in contemporary global politics. The presentation seeks to highlight some of these actions and strategies and apply a critical framework to understanding protest and political organization in times of political change and social perplexity.

    Isabelle Löfgren is a PhD and senior lecturer at Media and communication studies at Södertörn University
