The study of entanglements and flows in Inter-American mediascapes can still be considered an emergent field of studies at the interfaces of social communication, media flows, visual arts and media anthropology, which has been systematically charted. When assessing the far-reaching role played by media and communication in the dynamics of socio-cultural entanglements in the Americas, it is important to remember that the term “media” – one of the research focus of this volume – is a highly polysemic and polyfunctional concept in Western thought. The entries in this volume discuss many topics from the field of communication and media studies that have rarely been approached from an Inter-American perspective. One of the greatest political challenges of the late 1960s was the one posed to the supremacy of white political hegemony by ethnic minorities and the civil rights movement.
