In 2020, in the midst of the worst sanitary crisis in one century, everything is moving very fast, and the idea that this is all just a temporary moment of exception seems less tenable every day. The resulting order (or orders?) that follow the crisis will depend on what is negotiated and imposed by the actors who are linked to the three scenarios...

In the 2018 presidential election, Brazil elected a fringe congressman, Jair Bolsonaro, despite his radical rhetoric that would suffice to shake the public image of any candidate in the world and the lack of traditional resources of his campaign. One of the hypotheses for this electoral success is that his campaign built a specific communication st...

RESUMO O industrialismo, como chaga desumanizadora, vem sendo encarado como algo a ser vencido pelo menos desde o início do século XX (senão antes). O caminho para isso, para a superação da frieza mecânica das máquinas de ferro, explosão, fumaça e força, movidas por trabalho alienante, tem sido apontado como uma busca do entendimento do funcionamen...

Latin America has shown itself to be a fertile ground for the proliferation of sur- veillance cameras, especially in retail and in small-scale private security (homes, condomi- niums, shopping malls, etc.). In Brazil, this proliferation has occurred for three main reasons: the absence of specific legislation regulating how these systems are used; t...

If there is a peculiarity in the way of doing science and in the way of communicating science in Brazil, it is in the use of the idea of "deficit" in political and economic discourses, as well as in the discourses of socio-technical networks. Our proposal here is not to affirm or reject the existence of this deficit, but rather to understand its wo...

Project
In the light of a series of recent events and processes, it is extremely important to extend public debate on the rising culture of surveillance and monitoring of populations by States and corporations. This project is aimed at unveiling this scenario to scholars, activists and the general public, by building a critical discourse on the implications of the ?normalization? of surveillance practices. This is thought to be achieved through the consolidation and expansion of LAVITS? (Latin American Network of Surveillance, Technology and Society Studies) activities. The aim is to not only to increase debate on current monitoring procedures in Latin America, but also to promote exchange between academic research and other sectors of civil society that are creating knowledge and actions (social, artistic, cultural) in this context. This project focuses mainly on three axes of action: research; collaboration between universities and civil society; and development of technology. The first axis aspires to boost the development and cooperation of research projects focused on the emerging surveillance procedures in Brazil and Latin America. The second axis concentrates on the intersections and dialogue between universities and civil society proposing oriented activities. Finally, the third axis is dedicated to the development and dissemination of tools that increase awareness and provide individuals and groups with the means to protect their freedom and privacy in everyday communication and activities.
