Carlos D. Torres



Dr. Torres received his doctorate at the University of Colorado at Boulder in the subject of social anthropology with an emphasis in media anthropology. For his graduate research, he concentrated on the ethnographic media produced in Chiapas, Mexico. He has researched Maya-produced media in diverse formats, comprehensively documenting aesthetics, narrative devices, and the sociopolitical context of this media. He is currently looking at citizens' media produced globally to understand how this media is contributing to the world-wide mediascape through independent reportage and to the production of textual and testimonial truth.
