BIROLI, Flávia. Power techniques, disciplines for observation: some aspects of the making of "modern journalism" in Brazil. História [online]. 2007, vol.26, n.2, pp.118-143. ISSN 1980-4369. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742007000200007.
This article focuses on the relations between the changes in journalism during the XXth century and the build-up of journalists as productive and disciplined workers. It analyses a series of discourses, produced in Brazil after the 1940s, that converges in mechanisms for the discipline of observation and writing, in techniques for the disposing of time, experiences and bodies, affecting journalists and their readers.
