PAZ GARCIA, Ana Pamela; IMHOFF, Débora; VIEYRA, Camila  and  LOPEZ, Nerea. Treatment of food sovereignty and food security topics in hegemonic and alternative media (Cordoba, Argentina, 2012-2015). Estud. soc [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.51. ISSN 0188-4557.

Objective: the research aims to analyze the discourses of digital media of Cordoba about Food Security and Food Sovereignty issues. Methodology: under the approach of Discourse Critical Analysis, a corpus of 935 news published in the period 2012-2015 by four local media is analyzed -two media show a dominant position in the local press market, while the other two stand out as alternative means linked to movements and social organizations-. Results: political and ideological-discursive positions of the selected media and their information dynamics within the period addressed are critically studied. Limitations: this approach does not include perspectives coming from the audience of the information products analyzed, which at the micro-political level could complement the analysis developed around the social impact of the local media agenda on Food Security and Sovereignty. Conclusions: both the hegemonic and alternative mass media studied manifest a partial reading of the aforementioned themes. Inside the framework of the media coverage addressed, to the novelty and the repercussion of the problem is added a plot of ideological-editorial interests underlying the informative perspective of each medium, an aspect on which it is intended to provide some analytical elements.

Keywords : contemporary food; food security; food sovereignty; critical discourse analysis; media coverage; Argentina.
