Dr. Mónika Contreras Saiz
Dr. Mónika Contreras Saiz is the project leader of GUMELAB. Since 2012, she has been researching about how people learn the past. Her focus is primarily on how history and memory are transmitted through telenovelas, series, and comics, and on the use of digital humanities methods to investigate how they are received.
She fondly remembers the first telenovela she ever saw: Los Cuervos (Colombia, 1984).
