ARAYA GUZMAN, Camila; CARRASCO BARREDA, Patricia  and  OLIVARES ASTORGA, Javiera. Reflections on the visibility of youth-related issues on Chilean written media within the context of pandemic. Ultima décad. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.53, pp.5-39. ISSN 0718-2236.

The present article is a reflection intended to tackle the forms in which male and female young people are made visible by digital written media- as a part of the social construction of youth - within the context of COVID-19 pandemic in Chile. An adultcentric context is recognized as the ground for performing the communicative act based on a perspective of youth as a natural condition supported by three principles reinforced during the contingency of a pandemic: the biological heritage of the definition of youth, the stigmatization of youth groups and the reading of the context from a perspective of generational conflict between young people and adults.

Keywords : COVID-19; pandemic; youth; written media.
