Titulo de Libro: Dismantling cultural borders through social media: How Networked communities compromise identity
Drawing on a 17-month ethnography in a multicultural neighborhood in Santiago, Chile, and a content analysis of news media coverage, the authors focus on two news pieces about migrants that emerged as relevant by research participants, examining how the media and the local response framed them. The authors discuss how migrants’ portrayal in the media has contributed to and reinforced racialized and negative representations of certain migratory groups. Furthermore, this chapter explores how it has reinforced and validated the state’s racist politics and discourse against those migrants who are considered “undesired,” hindering, at the local level, migrants’ everyday lives in different ways.
