"The Media Operations and Communication Policies of Latin American Leftist Leaders: The Cases of Argentina and Uruguay"

View Full Event Description

Ivan Schuliaquer, a visiting student scholar from Argentina working on his doctoral dissertation, will present a talk entitled, “The Media Operations and Communication Policies of Latin American Leftist Leaders.”

The leftist governments of Frente Amplio in Uruguay and of the Kirchners in Argentina share the viewpoint that large media conglomerates play an oppositional role in their respective countries. However, there is significant variation in the ways that both governments have organized their media operations and established communication policies. The presentation develops a comparative analysis of the two cases to explore the factors that shape the relationship between media and political leaders in the region.
