Barbara Fontar

Barbara Fontar is an associate professor in Education Sciences, and she holds a PhD in Information and Communication Sciences. Her research focuses on the practices, devices, discourses, identities, uses and receptions of the actors involved in the communication and media processes. Her work aims to question communication and media processes in all dimensions of their social trajectory : emergence and production conditions ; discursive and situational devices and artifacts themselves ; and, finally, the reception and uses of the media by audiences. Her particular interest in issues related to the vast field of media education led her to conduct research on the reception and uses of the media (traditional and digital), especially among children and adolescents. In this context, she is interested in youth cultures, social imaginations, media representations, gender stereotypes and differentiated socializations, critical behaviors, media appropriation conditions, contexts of use, parental mediations, and media as a tool for recreation, education and communication.
