Using the theory of migratory networks and the legacy of the critical theory of the developmentalist models, this article puts forward a critical approach of the deficiencies of certain cultural consumption analyses in Latin America. It aims to develop an understanding of the production of high culture and distribution and reception processes in the transversal logic behind the constitution of migrating multitudes and their appropriation of the media content of global society. This work analyses the Latin American mass media and migrations with the aim of considering current intercultural and transcultural communication from the critical perspective of cultural consumption and reception in the Latin American field of communicology.
