Studying black women, territory and cinema opens the doors to urgent and necessary debate inside and outside the academic environment.

May others have the opportunity to access and make it possible to talk about us!”



Adriana Damasceno

Minibio: Graduated in Social Communication - qualification in Journalism from the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV), specialist in Institutional Communication and Marketing Management (Castelo Branco University) and Master in Communication and Territorialities, works as a journalist at the Communication Superintendency of the Federal University of Espírito Santo (Supec/Ufes). In her master's thesis, entitled “News frames constructed by the G1 and Mundo Negro portals on a case of racism: variations on the same theme”, she studied the racism present in Brazilian journalism through the analysis of news frames constructed by the hegemonic white media and that produced by alternative black media about a case of racism that occurred in Rio de Janeiro.

Testimony: “Since I was approved as a public servant of the Federal University of Espírito Santo (Ufes), where I started working as a press officer, I wanted to resume my studies, and PósCom became my most desired option. I was looking for constant learning about the world and, mainly, self-knowledge about my race and the implications of being a black woman in a racist society. At PósCom, since the beginning of the course, I found what I most wanted: multidisciplinarity, updated teaching staff, engaged colleagues. Throughout my studies, I noticed important personal changes, such as an increase in critical sense and an increase in racial literacy. PósCom was a lesson that adds to various points in my professional routine, but especially in my life. The knowledge acquired with the teachers during the subjects (especially on the qualification and defense boards), combined with the excellent exchanges with colleagues (who became friends) and the (many) readings done to increase my study made me an enhanced human being , infinitely better than when I entered.”
