Police violence and the internet in Brazil: new visibilities of historical patterns?
Lecture Room 103 |
UCL – Institute of the Americas
51 Gordon Square | London | WC1H 0PQ | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Dr Graham Denyer Willis, Cambridge
Egregious police violence has a long and racialized history in Brazil. Yet, in contemporary times, much police violence -torture, humiliation, execution- has become mundane, unexceptional and assumed. These kinds of violence have been made invisible, existing largely in and upon populations with little political voice. However, today, that may be changing. Some historical patterns of violence are being made visible, as though novel practices.
Dr Graham Denyer Willis will discuss how this is occurring counter intuitively in at least one way: as police themselves upload videos and images for all to see.
