GUMELAB, together with our cooperation partners at the German Historical Institute, hosted the international, inter- and transdisciplinary conference “Latin America's Contested Pasts in Telenovelas and TV Series. A Cross-Sector Dialogue between Academia, Entertainment and Society”. The conference provided a space for discussion and interaction on multiple levels between academics, television industry personnel, civil society organizations and television audiences. The discussion focused on the challenges and possibilities of conveying contemporary history in television series and methods for analyzing the creation, impact, and dissemination of these cultural products. As kick-off event, the Goethe Institute invited to an interdisciplinary discussion about and film screening of the German-Chilean television series Dignity on September 07.
