RUBIRA-GARCIA, Rainer  and  PUEBLA-MARTINEZ, Belén. Social representations and communication: theoretical notes for an interdisciplinary dialogue in progress. Convergencia [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.76, pp.147-167. ISSN 2448-5799.

The text makes a critical approach to the concept of social representations and its epistemological value for the understanding of interaction processes, in particular the communication ones. From a bibliographical review of authors, schools, theoretical and methodological perspectives, an attempt is made to systematize the fundamental contributions of the concept of representations and its relation to communication as a field of study. From an interdisciplinary perspective, the points of contact between representations and mediations within communicative dynamics are evaluated and some essential elements are suggested to consider the theoretical importance of social representations in communication research.

Keywords : representations; communication; mediations; review.
