número de IJMC dedicado a Convergencia Digital en AL
Popular Communication: The International Journal of Media and Culture is pleased to announce the publication of a special issue on Digital Convergence in Latin America (Volume 7, No. 3) featuring articles by Néstor García Canclini,
Jesús Martín Barbero, José Cabrera Paz, Ana María Ochoa and Carolina Botero, Raúl Trejo Delarbre and our guest editor Rosalía Winocur of Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Mexico.
The issue offers an outstanding collection of articles on the phenomenon of convergence in Latin America and on its cultural and social consequences.
We are excited about having been able to translate five of the six articles from Spanish, thereby overcoming the linguistic barrier that often impedes the wider discussion and examination of Latin American experiences of and with digital convergence.
