CABALIN, Cristian  and  ANTEZANA, Lorena. Melodrama and public pedagogy: The construction of memory from television fiction. Comun. soc [online]. 2020, vol.17, e7362.  Epub Jan 27, 2021. ISSN 0188-252X.

This article presents the main results of a research project that aims to analyze the construction of cultural memory through fictional series that represented the dictatorship period of Augusto Pinochet in Chile. Based on interviews and focus groups with young people between 18 and 24 years old who did not live this historical period, the importance of the melodramatic structures of the series is discussed to promote learning about the recent past, thus emphasizing the public pedagogical role that television fills.

Keywords : Melodrama; television; memory; reception; public pedagogy.
