The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) is profoundly saddened by the death of Jesús Martín-Barbero, a leading communication scholar who made his home in Colombia since 1963. Our 2017 conference in Cartagena featured a plenary session dedicated to his work and especially his landmark book Communication, Culture and Hegemony: From the Media to Mediations. Our deepest condolences to his friends, family and colleagues.
