*Animus – Inter-American Journal of Mediatic Communication *(

only), the scientific journal of the Graduate Program in Communication at
the Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil, seeks articles for a special
issue on media and consumption, focusing on – but not exclusively -
research carried out in the Global South, to be published in December 2012.

This special issue seeks culturally informed critiques of different forms
of media consumption. Contributions grounded in empirical research
(especially qualitative) are particularly welcome. We are especially
interested in papers that analyze the diverse genres of cultural
consumption as influenced by the media.

Essays that reveal earlier precedents for this phenomenon, or works that
reveal how theories developed in the past should be re-evaluated in the
light of the dynamics of media consumption in the Global South are also

The following list indicates, but is not limited to the range of potential

·        The role of media consumption in its intersection with
contemporary consumer culture;

·        Genres of media consumption such as magazines, television, and
information and communication technologies;

·        Media consumption and the construction of identities.
