The exercise of politics is related to the speeches and messages disseminated by the media. Leaders, parties, intellectuals, and characters linked to the exercise and political theory have circulated their words in pages, minutes, or images to reach the most significant possible number of recipients. This dossier analyzes this relationship and pays attention to the theoretical-methodological convergence and the turn of the information industry. From the initial point of the political press to the significance of this category, the issues show us the development of the information industry during the 20th century. The function of the new forms of linkage established the parties with communication. In this way, the different articles contribute with case studies, methodological studies, content analysis, or general reflections on the use of the media by politics, in addition, to rethink the historical meaning of the commercial press, the mass political press, and the militant press as an object-subject of study, as a political instrument or agent.

The archives have become more relevant in recent years, as they are no longer considered neutral repositories of information concerning the past. They have become a battleground for the contemporary world since their collections protect documents produced by state institutions, which citizens demand to challenge their predominance and the legitimacy of their actions over the social whole. Today, new conceptions have appeared about them, allowing institutions and social groups to develop a greater awareness of the vestiges of their daily activity - and the consequent extension of the concept of a document to non-written media - together with the gradual development of strategies and tools for their socialization and appropriation, opening the doors of premises previously reserved for specialists, either really or symbolically. In this sense, this dossier seeks to promote reflection and debate on the importance and meaning that archives give to current historiographic practice.
