GASCON I MARTIN, Felip  and  PACHECO SILVA, César. Emerging social movements and recurring media representations: Tensions in verbal-visual discourses built on student movement by Valparaíso press. Ultima décad. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.43, pp.25-52. ISSN 0718-2236.

The present article categorizes the dominant representations of declarative structures of verbal-visual discourses in the depiction of the social actors linked to the student movement. Based on a mixed and comparative social semiotic approach, the research covers information published in the newspaper El Mercurio de Valparaiso and the digital daily El Martutino between June 2011 and May 2012. The findings present the crisis of representation deliberately dramatized and amplified by the media, oversimplifying the scope of the student movement and excluding and decontextualizing it from the complex network of actors and social processes.

Keywords : student movement; verbal-visual discourse; representation.
