Dr. La Pastina research focus on the longitudinal understanding on how communities, normally away from urban centers, engage with mediated forms of communication. Relying on ethnographic practices, he has conducted research in rural Northeast Brazil, his main site of investigation since 1997, Southern Italy and the Rio Grande Valley in the Texas-Mexico boarder. He has also written extensively on telenovelas, and the representations of otherness in that genre.
