Abstract

This project aims to analyse the contexts of multi-sited production of the TV show “Magazine Contacto”, produced in different countries by members of the Portuguese diaspora and broadcasted by the Portuguese State TV channel. In this project, three local editions of the TV show will be analysed: the “Canadá Contacto”, the “França Contacto” and the “Brasil Contacto”. Scientifically the project is anchored in the Anthropology of Media sub-discipline, promoting an anthropological approach to a television production that is aimed at the “Portuguese communities” in the diaspora. The project articulates a discussion between a media production and the migrant’s expressive cultural and identity constructions. From an “ethnography of production” point of view, it will be discussed the concerns regarding the creation of local and transnational contents and their implication in the construction of a Portuguese identity in the diaspora, as also the management and control of the media production from Portugal.
