Contradictions & Emerging Dynamics at the Landless Worker’s Movement in Esp. Santo, Brazil 2010: a multimedia anthropological scape by M. Kontopodis

This multimedia article investigates current dynamics, contradictions, and open questions regarding the Landless Rural Worker’s Movement – “O Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra” or the “MST” – in Espírito Santo, Brazil. It presents different modes of materials, such as personal narrations, ethnographic fieldnotes, photos and videos as well as theoretical analyses. The author positions himself in solidarity with the Movement, and makes explicit his political values. At the same time he tries to take a critical and reflective stance. A series of issues are discussed such as: the production of meaning, production of material goods, state funding, use of technology, distribution of power. An interdisciplinary perspective is developed about how current contradictions can be resolved so that the Movement can be further developed.
