Registration open for the 3rd edition of CO(M)XÉNERO

The seminar focuses on video games to analyse sexism, violence and gender stereotypes

08/10/2019

The 18 & 19 of November takes place in Santiago de Compostela the 3rd edition of CO(M)XÉNERO – Permanent Seminar on Communication and Gender, organized by the Audiovisual Studies Research Group (GEA) and the Office for Gender Equality of the USC.

This time, the seminar puts the focus on video games, a field traditionally viewed as a male hobby in which, however, women are increasingly claiming their voice as developers, players, and journalists.

Coordinated by Margarita Ledo Andión, director of GEA and Marta Pérez Pereiro, teacher and researcher at the USC, CO(M)XÉNERO is aimed at communication students, researchers, professionals and people interested in analysing mass media and creative industries from a critical perspective.

Attending the seminar can be recognized as a training activity for the students of «Contemporary Communication and Information PhD Program».

Free registration is open until 15 November. Check the program and form available on this website.

«Cibersexism. Violence & Videogames» is the motto that delimits the topics of the third CO(M)XÉNERO. Thus, the seminar seeks to reveal the stereotypes and gender inequalities of a realm that, due to its growth and the creative possibilities, gets a special relevance today in shaping new discourses and universes.

In the course, teachers, developers, designers and players will analyse the scenarios of violence and discrimination suffered by women and how we can fight them with communicative and educational tools.

Conferences, audiovisual works, debates, workshops and an eSports exhibition tournament are part of a program designed to approach videogames from an inclusive perspective.

The third edition of CO(M)XÉNERO is financed by the State Pact against Gender-based Violence (Ministry of the Presidency, Relations with the Cortes and Equality) and the Xunta de Galicia through the Call for the Consolidation and Structuring of Competitive Research Units-2017, from which the GEA is a beneficiary.
