La representación Dogon y Wayana en la web francesa: subsidios para una crítica cultural.

The main objective of this research is know and analyze the interpretations who has been produced and widespread about the Dogon and the Wayana in two communication medias: the programs transmitted by the TV, and the internet sites. We pretend to analyze the production about the Dogon and the Wayana (principally the French vision), and the participation –or the absence of it- of this groups in these communications medias. The audiovisual technology has turn, especially the videos, a instrument of militancy used by the autochthonous population and by the minorities. For us, was important to research if the same is append in relation to internet, if exist technological transferences of the web, who are they agents and the process of the intercultural dialogs by this medias. This study is about the representation in the web, adopting a comparative perspective to elucidate the contemporaneous forms and motivations of representations of otherness, in this case between France and two ex colonies (Mali Republic and French Guyana where we can find the Dogon and Wayanas). This text introduce methodological ways to treat this universe and explore the theoric challenges of the field. We present preliminary results, clarifying this is a unfinished research.
