Thank you guys a lot for all the brilliant recommendations. I did a little "dig around"  and found some insightful and interesting pieces. I thought I'd share them with you:

Subject: [CITASA] Technology in "unusual" places

Hello everyone,

My name is Jen McCalister, I'm a PhD student at Northumbria University and I'm studying the use of technology in "unusual" places. I was wondering if you smart folks could recommend researchers or scholarly work that focus on technology in the Favellas / slums of Brazil?

Thanks heaps.
