The fast technological development has led societies to the information age since 1970's. The power of such advances has made possible to affirm that time and distance have constricted as quick as technical progress. In another field of action, the States have impaired their role in mediating international relations between societies and, due to the penetrability of information and communication technologies in one's daily routine, the new possibilities have granted more interaction among nations. Considering this conjuncture, identity gathered new resources to its own analysis and comprehension. Following this line of thought, our analysis aims at developing a study about the now existing Latin- American individuality. Thus, we resorted to the Constructivism, a method of reasoning in International Relations that has been developed in the last decades, being aware of current implications from the contemporary reality. By this means it is possible to consider cognitive elements in relations from the international scenery. Hence, this study will rely on three basic foundations in order to analyze the impact of this conjuncture in Latin American nations,studies regarding: the History of Latin America; new information and communication technologies; and finally the Constructivism method in International Relations, aiming at establishing connections between Latin-American people, their identity and communication and information society.
