Advances in Journalism and Communication (AJC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajc.2015.31003
Abstract: Nowadays, democracy discussions including a variety of different approaches are made due to the impact of globalization. In this respect, local press comes to the fore as a significant element in the development of participatory citizenship and democracy values from the periphery to the center in a way to reflect differences. This research aims at examining the relationship amongst democracy, citizenship and local press using the local media Boulder, a city in Colorado state of the USA, as a case study. The study is composed of two parts. In the first part, we are going to discuss theoretical frameworks that will help us to better understand the concept of democracy and citizenship, the impact and importance of participatory citizenship on democracy and democratization. The second part includes the historical development of Boulder city and Colorado state. Their sociological and economic features in order to understand the local background of the geography in which the newspaper we examine in our case study are located. The significance of local media and press in Boulder for the state in general and its historical development are analyzed also including examples including the flow of information rendering the participation of citizens possible. In this respect, the importance of local press for the participation of citizens and its impact on democratization are examined.

East and West: Orientalism, war and the colonial present
Etnográfica , 2007,
Abstract: for at least two hundred years, western countries have exercized a "benevolent" violence through colonization. advocated in the name of the "civilizing mission" of the west and inspired by eschatology, this calling held the promise of redemption, both for the colonizer and for the colonized. the "war declared on terrorism" after the massacre of 9/11 in new york, with the subsequent military operations in afghanistan and in iraq, revives this tradition of ameliorative interventionism by carrying on the old orientalist-related topoi. far from effacing the great divide between the west and the rest, the wars of a putatively new type reinforce and polarize the division between "civilized" and "barbaric" in the era of "globalization". the unfolding ideology of the american, according to which there would no longer be "outside" or "inside", because no country would now be exempt from terrorism, obscures at little cost, but not ineffectually, the "colonial present". what now prevails is a sombre vision of globalization, that of a fight to the death between two worlds, extending over all continents, between the "empire of the good", incarnated by america, and the "empire of evil", incarnated by islamic terrorism. but this novelty goes back to schemas that are as old as the united states itself, insofar as this self-proclaimed "exceptional", "unilateral" and "providential" "imperial republic" has an idealistic or utopian component qualified as "indispensable". welcome the the "wilsonism in boots"!

Feres Júnior, Jo?o;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452004000200005
Abstract: this article examines aspects of the semantic history of spanish america in nineteenth-century united states. the analysis of speeches and texts by american politicians, government officials, journalists and intellectuals suggests a tendency to give spanish america and its habitants some traces opposite to the ones done to the american collective self-image. those negative qualities cover three "semantic regions": culture, time and race. the article exposes how and when those "regions" have risen and the actions projected from and justified for their articulation.

Lüdke, Menga;
Revista Brasileira de Educa??o , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-24782005000300009
Abstract: this text deals with the principal influences suffered, at their outset, by master's and doctoral programmes in brazil, based on models already well developed in the period 1960/70, by countries like france and the usa. as i had the opportunity to live in these countries as a postgraduate student, from where i returned to brazil when the first programmes were being implanted, i was able to confer such influences and their results. this is clearly a personal view, limited by my own experience, and not furthered by means of a study or more careful analysis. however, i was able to confront and confirm my impressions with those of colleagues who lived similar experiences but nevertheless i accept total responsibility for the interpretations which i present in the text as suggestions for other interpretations and studies which may further the suppositions which i have managed to raise.
