Josebe Martínez Artículo en Revista 2018 Grupo Consolidado

Journal of Iberian and Latin American Research

This article analyzes the concept of culture of violence based on hypotheses endorsed by different social scientists regarding the feminicides of Ciudad Juárez and the disappearance of the 43 students in Ayotzinapa. It articulates several epistemic approaches that address key issues to critically think about the social reality of countries that, like Mexico, live through situations of mass violence. It examines the visibility of organized crime and violence, conceived as a spectacle, in order to deepen our understanding of the global order of the neoliberal interconnections and colonial practices that underline the concept and its significance in the digital age.
