In this Digital Dialogue Silvia Mejía Estévez will show clips from her dissertation project, a documetary video analyzing how new technologies such as Internet, satellite communications, email, video-conferences, and cell phones have changed the experience of being away from home, transforming nostalgia and encouraging the appearance of transnational phenomena.

Silvia Mejía Estévez is a doctoral candidate in Comparative Literature and a MITH fellow.

A continuously updated schedule of talks is also available on the Digital Dialogues webpage.
