CARDENAS NEIRA, Camila. Representation of Political Action among Chilean Students: Dissemination of Meanings in Social Media. Ultima décad. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.40, pp.57-84. ISSN 0718-2236.

This paper examines the performance of the political action that chilean students generated in social media. The purpose of the study is established three places of enunciation that work as simultaneous spaces of resistance: streets, classrooms, and screens. selected Facebook and Twitter publications that range from August 2011 to July 2013 will be studied through the lens of Critical Discourse Analysis. A communicative perspective based on the focus analysis of resemiotization/resemantization permits to observe the link between topologies and emerging gnoseologies, reformulating online hetero and auto-representation practices in terms of complex identification processes in permanent tension. These are recontextualized from the establishment of a common sociocognitive basis: the meanings that students move from some discursive spaces to others reconstruct representations, based on an intertextuality marked historically and generationally with special emphasis on knowledge and shared memories.

Keywords : Chilean student movement; online discourse; political representation.
