CHARLOIS ALLENDE, Adrien José. Mexican historical telenovela: a memory mode, two narrative models. Comun. soc [online]. 2020, vol.17, e7460.  Epub Jan 27, 2021. ISSN 0188-252X.

This article proposes the revision of the evolution of the Mexican historical telenovela, thought as a mode of cultural memory, through the description of the melodramatic genre as a narrative matrix. This description leads us to think about the constitution of a mode of remembrance that has been articulated in two basic models and that remediates facts and characters of nationalist historiography, which made it a cultural support to the official discourse on the national past.

Keywords : Historical telenovela; melodrama; cultural memory; television; Mexico.
