Communicative Repertoires in the Transforming Global South

It is through communication that transformation processes in the Global South reach broader awareness and come to notice. Individuals and social groups make use of communicative repertoires, including diverse forms of verbal and non-verbal communication together with communication instruments such as digital media. Communicative repertoires are construed as forms of social and symbolic capital and as such are an integral part of economic relationships and social networks. The research area investigates the transformation of communicative practices and the associated symbolic capital in order to shed light on changing power relations and how they are negotiated in everyday life.
