CO(M)XÉNERO 6. Cracks in the chalk circle

Permanent Seminar on Communication and Gender

The sixth edition of CO(M)XÉNERO, organised by the Grupo de Estudos Audiovisuais (GEA) with the support of the Oficina de Igualdade de Xénero of the USC and Xornalistas Galegas, focuses on this occasion on the possibilities of journalism to transform, from conscious practices, the heteropatriarchal discourse of the media. The meeting will present experiences of introducing the gender perspective in the language of journalism together with a workshop on intervention in its contents. Putting an end to discriminatory and exclusionary dynamics requires the necessary construction of audiences and collectives trained in critical thinking, capable of analysing, deconstructing and even beginning to reverse the sexist representations and structures present in the media.

With the aim of breaking the chalk circle, the seminar seeks to reflect on ways of incorporating voices that do not usually appear in the media and to introduce new points of view in the information in which women are protagonists.

The seminar is aimed at communication students, researchers, professionals and, in general, anyone interested in approaching the media and the cultural and creative industries from a critical perspective. Registration is open until 21 March.

This edition of CO(M)XÉNERO once again collaborates with the Mostra Internacional Cinema Etnográfico (MICE) – Museo do Pobo Galego and is funded by the Xunta de Galicia through the 2021 call for grants for the consolidation and structuring of competitive research units, of which the GEA is a beneficiary.

Participation is free with prior registration.
