DescriptionThis research had as main objective to investigate the interpretations produced by women communicative subjects for the female drug dealer characters of the series Queen of the South, highlighting the presence of women main roles in this scenario. To base the investigation, I reflected about the theoretical concepts: series as fictional gender; gender, as an analytical and epistemological category to think about women; communicative subjects and reception processes; cultural identities and communicative citizenship. To understand the surroundings of the problematic, I made a contextualization movement that covered questions: of drug dealing in the border of Mexico and the United States; of the drug dealer Sandra Ávila Beltrán, who inspired the series Queen of the South; of the character Teresa Mendoza, the Queen of the South; of the processes of interlocution among the Latin and the American television; and the feminine migrations to the United States. The methodological strategies were built with basis on the transmethodology, which oriented the bibliographic research, the research of the research, the contextualization research and the theoretical research. The transmethodological perspective also guided the exploratory empirical research, accomplished with questionnaires and interviews on the digital spaces of the series Queen of the South, with subjects who form the public of the show. Furthermore, were made in-depth interviews with five women who composed the sample of the systematic phase of the investigation. The dissertation allowed me to think about the potentialities and obliterations of the communicative citizenship effectiveness on the building of a feminine gender in Queen of the South. From the dialogues with the subjects of the reception, it was possible to comprehend how each gender trajectory create significations to the series, opening discussions about feminism, equality and fight for women rights in a citizenship perspective.
