The Sweet Whisper of the Symbolic Power

Block seminar

Part 1: 2015 December the 07th – 11th, 14 pm – 17pm

Room 315 


In Mexico in the last 8 years 150 000 Mexicans died in the so-called fight against narcotrafic, also it is one of the most dangerous countries for journalists. The course will analize the creative process in an environment saturated by “symbolic power” taking the contemporary Mexican situation as a starting point then we widen up the view and will investigate examples from other societies as well. The course is based on the concept of the symbolic power by Pierre Bourdieu, understood as an invisible power.
