This doctoral dissertation explores social media content and creation practices by different actors in relation to migratory narratives and migrant groups in the US and Spain. The analysis includes content creators in general, political figures, migrant influencers, and migrants creating content online. It considers the prominence of migratory narratives as instrumental for political, cultural, social and ideological positioning as well as one that has critical implications for the ability of receiving societies and diverse individuals to coexist. In this case, the platforms of interest are Instagram and TikTok because of their popularity and visuality as well as the (self)representative configurations they enable.
