My name is Oscar Mario Miranda Villanueva. I was awarded the status of Candidate to National Researcher by the Research National System (SNI), of the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT). I hold a PhD in Humanistic Studies (DEH) with an emphasis on Communication and Cultural Studies, degree provided by Tecnologico de Monterrey, campus Monterrey. I was a visiting graduate student at the University of Tampere, Finland, and a doctoral researcher at the Tampere Research Group for Cultural and Political Sociology (TCuPS) for a year and a half. I was as well an active member of the Research Center for Communication and Information (CINCO), for four and a half years. I have published in indexed journals both local and international, and have a book chapter in a book published by the Spanish publishing house: Plaza y Valdés. I have contributed in various research projects both in Mexico and abroad. In addition, I have done activities for NGOs, under the field of international voluntary service, through which I have coordinated over 180 youth from around the world and offered workshops in Mexico, Peru and Finland.
