Student thesis: Doctoral thesis


The present research work aims to promote discussion about the issue of power they hold the mass media in the modern society for crystallize some social imaginaries through the production of a type of discourse that spreads through the public sphere. In this sense, our work, located in the field of communication research and journalism, promotes the study of the social imaginaries crystallized in the Latin American press in contexts of social conflict. More precisely, this work aims to describe the social imaginary about the collective protest action and the crisis in Argentina in 2001, using the discourse analysis in the case of newspapers El Mercurio of Chile and La Nación of Argentina.
