The book "Research Traditions in Dialogue: Communication Studies in Latin America and Europe" reflects on the following questions: What are the possibilities to establish bridges, comparisons and connections between/among Communication Studies in Europe and Latin America? How can we describe, and put into perspective, the research in these two regions? How are they connected, in particular ways, to functionalism, critical thinkings, culturalist currents, alternative reflexions, postcolonial studies and feminist perspectives about the Communication?

These are important issues that are relevant to Communication scholars and students – This new book aims to stimulate the debate on the roles of these research traditions, and on the similarities and differences in the two regions. In dealing with these questions, the book aims to connect Communication studies in Latin America and Europe through dialogues that involved important researchers who accepted the challenge of working together.
