O espanhol Jesús Martín-Barbero trabalhou vários anos nesse país, o argentino Néstor García Canclini radicou-se lá e foi nesse solo que as teorias circulantes mais conhecidas ganharam foro internacional.
Vinte anos atrás, Néstor García Canclini dizia que a obra de Jesús Martín-Barbero "atravessa várias disciplinas", pois, deslocava a análise dos meios ás mediações sociais, que, portanto, não era apenas num texto de comunicação.
