    'Have you ever seen a thief wearing a uniform?' Struggling for dignity in southeastern Brazil2015Inngår i: Ethnography, ISSN 1466-1381, E-ISSN 1741-2714, Vol. 16, nr 2, s. 207-222Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazil is a highly unequal and socially segregated society. Within this context, Brazilians' everyday lives are marked by the constant reading of bodies: Who is/could be/looks dangerous? Who should be avoided? Poor working-class people are painfully aware of readings merging poverty and criminality. Based on ongoing ethnographic fieldwork among middle-class and lower-income persons in southeastern Brazil, this photo essay investigates some visual mechanisms at play in processes of social categorization. With a point of departure in the rhetorical question 'Have you ever seen a thief wearing a uniform?' uttered by unskilled workers at moments when their moral status is questioned, this essay examines the dynamic tensions linking physical appearance, morality and social hierarchies in contemporary Brazil. It highlights some of the ways through which unskilled workers' uniforms can be a marker of both marginality and morality as they provide a visual basis for classism in everyday interaction and signal, in other situations, group affiliation, honesty and worker pride.

    Before and after: Femininity, class and race in Plastic Surgery and Beauty2008Inngår i: Luso-Brazilian Review, ISSN 0024-7413, E-ISSN 1548-9957, Vol. 45, nr 1, s. 146-163Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The present article analyzes how women and cosmetic surgery are represented in a Brazilian magazine called Plastica e Beleza [Plastic Surgery and Beauty]. This monthly magazine is specialized, as its name indicates, in bodily aesthetics, and it addresses mostly a female audience. Situated within an anthropological analysis of media, the present article investigates how discourses about bodily aesthetics produce and reproduce certain representations of gender, class, and race that can be found in contemporary Brazil. It is argued that cosmetic surgery's ""before and after"" reflects the here and now of the Brazilian social body.

    "Les voix du rebut" ("Garbage Speeches"/"As falas do lixo"): pratiques orales de positionnement social en contexte d’interactions asymétriques (oral practices of social positioning in asymmetric interactions/práticas orais de posicionamento social em interações assimétricas)2017Inngår i: Brésil(s), ISSN 2257-0543, Vol. 12Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Garbage - that which is excluded, put aside, hidden, buried, taken out of sight, and rejected - is the starting point of this paper. Approached as refuted matter, garbage circulates between private and public arenas, between centers of power and forgotten peripheries. Approached as a social metaphor, garbage marks the limits between categories, between those things and people considered to have value, and those considered to be useless and disposable. In this paper, I discuss the use of language as a strategy for social positioning by analyzing some everyday interactions taking place among women from different social classes gathered during fieldwork in Southeastern Brazil. As I show, when practiced in asymmetric interactions, these garbage speeches not only classify people in terms of status and value, but also reinforce already existing differences. At focus in the present analysis are oral practices of social positioning where status and social exclusion are harshly negotiated.

    An ethnographic approach to the recpetion of telenovelas: some reflections on research methods2007Inngår i: E-compós, ISSN 1808-2599, Vol. 10, s. 1-17Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazilian telenovelas are broadcast throughout Brazil six days a week during prime time. Everyday, they attract an audience of more than forty million viewers. They also attract millions of dollars of advertising revenue and promote a range of commodities and desires that are made available for television viewers. Several studies on the reception of Brazilian telenovelas have considered viewers’ reactions to and interpretations of the plots of telenovelas. Having decided to research about the impact these programs have on people’s lives, I was confronted with a crucial question: how to proceed in order to obtain qualitative information about the reception of telenovelas? In this article, I discuss and reflect on some methodological questions with which I had to deal during my research process. Here I argue that a complete analysis of viewers’ reception of telenovelas should take into account the way telenovelas are integrated and implicated within other media and within events of daily life. Ethnographic fieldwork makes such an approach possible.

    Out of Sight, Out of Mind? Middle-Class Households, Waste, Consumption, and Environmental Awareness in Southeastern Brazil2017Inngår i: Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology, ISSN 1935-4932, E-ISSN 1935-4940, Vol. 22, nr 2, s. 298-319Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how middle-class households in the city of Belo Horizonte, southeastern Brazil, deal with the waste that pervades their lives. Processes of classification and disposal are examined and related to consumption practices, the division of labor, and environmental issues. This research also examines how waste is implicated in the performance of middle class-ness, in notions of morality, and in norms and codes classifying and distinguishing the valuable from the worthless. The present study suggests that members of the ethnographic sample seem worried about issues regarding social hierarchies and class belonging, to a much greater degree than they are concerned with the environmental aspects of consumption and waste management. Out of sight, out of mind? In an explicit context of social inequality, behavior toward waste passes first through the lens of class.

    Producing Beauty in Brazil: Vanity, Visibility and Social Inequality2009Inngår i: Vibrant Virtual Brazilian Anthropology, ISSN 1809-4341, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 208-237Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazil is a country with one of the most unequal income distributions in the world. Even so, Brazilians’ preoccupation with the body and beauty is remarkably palpable and present in contemporary everyday life. The country occupies a leading position when it comes to cosmetic interventions and consumption of cosmetic products. Beautiful bodies are being produced, maintained and cared for not only by plastic surgeons but also by the work of nurses, facial- and body-therapists, hairdressers, manicurists, pedicurists, maids, sellers of beauty products and of an enormous variety of treatments that combine grooming with caring. In this article, I argue that the context of social inequality that so pervasively characterizes Brazilian society sets the stage for the production of bodies and beauty. By focusing on the ways women, acting from distinct socioeconomic contexts, relate to and participate in the production of beautiful bodies, I explore the dynamic entanglements of beauty, vanity, visibility and social inequality. As will be shown, different forms of body work are used to gain visibility and to stress and/or erase social differences.

    Transformations Télévisuelles: Réflexions au sujet de l'impact des telenovelas brésiliennes sur la vie quotidienne des téléspectateurs2012Inngår i: Anthropologie et Sociétés, ISSN 0702-8997, E-ISSN 1703-7921, Vol. 36, nr 1-2, s. 73-94Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazil is a country with one of the largest television audiences in the world. Ninety percent of the households in the country have at least one television set. What is broadcast on Brazilian television ? Soccer, of course is shown more or less continually. News and entertainment programs also make up an important share of television’s programming. But one of the most broadcast – and most watched – types of program is the telenovela. Telenovelas are saturated with images and narratives of characters who, in order to achieve love, happiness, and social mobility, engage in the transformation of themselves and their bodies. These transformations affect personal relationships, personal assets and social hierarchies of gender, sexuality, race, and class. Based on several periods of fieldwork in the state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil, this article summarizes and presents some of the main findings of a larger research project about Brazilian telenovelas. The article briefly introduces this genre and presents a new take on their reception, moving the focus away from a study of viewers’ interpretations of telenovelas’ plots, to an analysis of viewers’ everyday engagement with the telenovela flow : messages, products, stories and desires that intercept with telenovelas’ plots and circulate throughout Brazilian society. It then takes a closer look at the way the telenovela flow relates to Brazilian society and how Brazilians relate to this flow : What impact does it have on viewers ? Does the telenovela flow work as a guideline, shaping how viewers think and act ?
