    por Pedro César Cantú-Martínez el día agosto 4, 2021 a las 4:15 pm

    This paper addresses the role of non-governmental organizations, providing solidarity support and disinterested in the problem of violence against women. In Mexico this social problem has been difficult to solve, because it has social and cultural roots. The stage is presented in the national framework and we also see government structuring such as the non-governmental organization through civil society that hosts this social eventuality in Nuevo Leon. A descriptive methodology was used and qualitative representation, reports and documents were accessed, that allowed us to delimit the object of study. Nuevo León's scenario repeats social situation and violence that persists in Mexico. Nuevo Leon has 4.3% of the country's women, violence persists in 59.3% of them. First cause was in a communal way, following the one imposed by his partner. Government structure provides legal and care services. However, civil society has organized to address this contingency, and in Nuevo León there are organizations that 4.87% are related to women's care in these cases. They perform care functions, human rights, self care, education and guidance, mental health services, capacity building and social reintegration.

The findings show that social capital in its online bonding dimension, as well as its online bridging and traditional dimensions through political participation online of Facebook users, significantly influence their traditional political participation, in other words, social capital of Facebook users affects political participation offline. It is concluded that social media social capital represents an opportunity to increase political participation, online and offline, and therefore pressure the authorities to meet the needs of their population.

  • Punitive populism and far right in the Iberian space
    por Alfonso A. López Rodríguez el día agosto 4, 2021 a las 4:05 pm

    Abstract: The entry of extreme right-wing populist formations into the institutions of Spain and Portugal represents a qualitative change in their political systems. One relevant issue is the electoral use of the strategy of punitive populism, a tool already used extensively by other more veteran formations within this ideological family in Europe. The question addressed in this text is to what extent they have used this strategy, and whether they have made any particular modulation of it in their electoral manifestos in force during the elections for entry into the parliamentary chambers of each of the Iberian countries.

  • Semiotic and discourse analysis of the children’s program PJ Mask or Héroes en pijamas
    por Briggette Dayanna Vega-Barriga el día agosto 4, 2021 a las 4:04 pm

    This investigative work analyzes the discourse of the children’s series PJ Masks. The objective of our study is to determine the visual and linguistic resources used in the construction of the message. This analysis will allow us to recognize the recurring discursive characteristics, regarding the language used and the elements of visual semiotics, which allow a positive response from the children’s audience. A qualitative methodology was proposed through observation cards and discourse analysis, the linguistic and graphic characteristics present in two seasons of the children’s series were identified. In the series we recognize a simple language, words and phrases that are repeated in all episodes. The message revolves around a problem that one of the heroes must face, the conflicts that this creates for him and how with the support of his friends he overcomes it. The visual semiotic part reinforces the speech, allows the children to identify the colors of the costumes and the special places. The discursive strategies used in the PJ Mask series respond to a series of messages that seek to reinforce values in children, through the formula of continuous repetition of a message, changing the negative to the positive. With regard to the semiothic, saturated and intense colors, unique locations and symbols that identify each character are worked, each hero has a color and a symbol.
