Palabras clave:

eventos mediáticos, encuadre, emoción, transnacional


Este estudio examina los eventos mediáticos desde la perspectiva de mercados geo-culturales al analizar los encuadres mediáticos utilizados durante la cobertura de los medios impresos del desastre minero chileno de 2010 en periódicos de Chile, México y España. El estudio evalúa las narrativas, dinámicas y perspectivas en dos encuadres principales –amor y héroes– para profundizar nuestro entendimiento de las estrategias de encuadre en el mercado geo-cultural hispano al abordar cómo los mercados geo-culturales pueden reforzar, localizar o trascender los marcos de referencia o diferir internamente. El objetivo es problematizar la aparente estandarización de mercados geo-culturales y analizar su ocurrencia diferencial en los encuadres, identificando correlaciones y disimilitudes entre las representaciones del accidente minero en las tres naciones. Además, la investigación destaca las variables en cada encuadre y su asociación con las características culturales del Sur Global, haciendo del concepto de encuadre uno más adaptable y flexible. Finalmente, el estudio demuestra que los encuadres de afecto y emoción fueron altamente influyentes para convertir al desastre minero chileno en un evento mediático.
