On October 6th - 7th, together with our cooperation partners from the Universidad de Antioquia, the Institute of Physics and the Group of Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics (GTFyMA), we organized the workshop “Investigar telenovelas y series sobre la historia reciente en Colombia, Chile y Brasil con métodos digitales y cualitativos: sobre el desarrollo, el uso y los desafíos” (“Conducting research with digital and qualitative methods on telenovelas and series about the recent history in Colombia, Chile and Brazil: on the development, application and challenges”). Through the work in the GUMELAB project with social networks, which are understood as a space for memory research and transformation, the international and interdisciplinary workshop aimed to exchange, discuss, and connect different disciplines that work with digital research methods (e-research) and/or telenovelas and series. The benefits of e-research for social science projects were particularly discussed. Among others, we had contributions by our cooperation partners from Chile (Dr. Lorena Antezana Barrios), from Colombia (Leonardo A. Pachón Contreras, Gicela Andrea Aguirre García, Carolina Galindo Hernández, Prof. Dr. Tatjana Louis, Edward Goyeneche-Gómez, Enrique Uribe-Jongbloed) and Brazil (Roberto Abdala Júnior). Keynote speaker Jaime Borja (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia) spoke about the ARCA digital project, which digitizes colonial art and makes it available as an online archive.
