Project description

Scholars point to the emancipatory potential of the contemporary Latin American chronicle, noting that it offers an alternative discourse on problems such as gender violence. However, little attention has been paid to the content of this discourse and to the ways in which it is constructed. This project aims to reveal the techniques chronicle authors use to create a counterhegemonic discourse on gender violence.
