Magda Vaz Dos Santos

I am a film programmer, activist and doctoral student at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya in the Department of Culture, Society and Technology. Currently, the research I am working on focuses on the representation of consent in queer cinema.

I have a degree in Fine Arts (Universitat de Barcelona) and I have completed a master’s degree in Cultural Management (UOC). There I began to analyze the power of cultural productions as ideological agents that not only reflect power structures, but can also alter them. My main areas of interest are representation in cultural products, cinema, gender and sexuality, mutual support, theories of consent and epistemologies of ignorance. Being an active part of queer and feminist collectives is also an important part of my experience and research.
