Pensar a la audiencia transnacional: comunicación de masas en la etapa posnacional

Gabriel Alberto Moreno Esparza


El artículo argumenta que las categorías de análisis de la era de la comunicación de masas permanecen vigentes -pese a la descalificación de aportes teóricos sobre los nuevos medios-, para explicar fenómenos de recepción y uso de las tecnologías de información y comunicación de la audiencia transnacional, como lo demuestran los usos sociales de la televisión por parte de mexicanos en Estados Unidos.

Palabras clave

audiencia transnacional; comunicación de masas; etapa posnacional; análisis crítico de la recepción; usos sociales de la televisión
