The purpose of this pre-conference is to promote an intellectual exchange on the way the media interact with social, political, symbolic and technological changes in Latin America. More precisely, this pre-conference will analyze the role of the media in enabling the expression of a plurality of voices in the region. This ability is conditioned by existing communicational and structural legacies; by naturalized interactions between social political actors and institutions; by media policies and journalistic routines, as well as by the impact of digital and technological developments. We welcome submissions that explore innovative theoretical and methodological approaches to the role of the media in promoting pluralism.
