Sara Pereira, researcher and member of the “Media and Journalism” group of CECS, is one of the invited editors of the upcoming issue of Mexican scientific journal Comunicación y Sociedad, subject to the title “Transmedia alphabetism”. In this edition participate as well arlos Scolari (University Pompeu Fabra – Spain), Rosalía Winocur (Universidad de la República – Uruguay) and Carlos Barreneche (Universidad Javeriana – Colombia). Articles submission is due on 15th December 2017.
In the presentation of this special issue, the editors highlight that “the present context of media literacy is no longer dedicated to critically analyse the media itself. Traditional media consumers are now active members which surpass their interpretative competences, into new sophisticated narrative formats, by creating content, sharing and using it in social networks”.
