  • Abstract
  • Laura Fernández¿s chapter contributes to the fields of critical animal and media studies and migration studies by empirically addressing the visual representation of human and nonhuman migrants in the international press. The visual representation of these collectives has not been previously analyzed together or compared in terms of press photography representation. The analysis is enriched by examining it in the context of the human supremacist colonial modern/world system, and the analysis underlines from an empirical point of view how the process of othering is in both cases intertwined with the animalization of human and nonhuman migrants. Also, six new frames are proposed that could be useful for future empirical research on the issue.
