GUMELAB scholarship holder Catalina Brunetti has successfully completed her Master's thesis

News from Feb 07, 2024

We are delighted that Catalina Brunetti has successfully completed her Master's thesis. In her thesis Serie Los 80: ficción televisiva como artefacto de memoria she analysed the Chilean series "Los 80", which portrays the life of a middle-class family during the military dictatorship. With an interdisciplinary perspective that interweaves reception, memory and gender studies, she analysed how personal and family stories are constructed within fictional programmes in the context of the national history portrayed. During a field research stay in Chile, she conducted interviews with Chilean viewers of the generación bisagra ("hinge generation"), i.e. the generation of those who grew up during the dictatorship and whose children were born at the time of democracy.
