In this lecture the complex and ambiguous relationship between media and
citizenship is analyzed. Taking the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and hurricane
Katrina in 2005 as case studies, it discusses the possibility and the
constraints of proposing alternative grammars that allow for the
construction of a common but not consensual world.

*José Manuel Mendes* holds a PhD in Sociology from the School of Economics
of the University of Coimbra, where he is an Assistant Professor of
Sociology. He is also a senior researcher at the Centre for Social Studies
(CES), where he has been working in the fields of inequalities, social
mobility, social movements and collective action and, more recently, on the
themes of risk, social vulnerability, trauma and victims' associations.

He is coordinator of the Risk Observatory (OSIRIS) of CES. Among his
publications is the edited book (with Pedro Araujo), *Os lugares
(im)possíveis da cidadania: Estado e risco num mundo globalizado *(*The
(im)possible places of citizenship: Risk and State in a globalized world*),
Coimbra: Almedina, 2013.
