XII International OBITEL Seminar (Ibero-American Observatory of Television Fiction)

The Department of Journalism at the Faculty of Communication Sciences (Autonomous University of Barcelona), is hosting the XII International OBITEL Seminar.

The Iberoamerican Observatory of TV Fiction (OBITEL) gathers scholars from 12 countries from Latin America, Spain, Portugal and United States that conduct systematic research of production, diffusion and reception of the Ibero-American television programming. The OBITEL yearbook and the annual seminars organized at different partner countries make available to scholars and industry the results of the research conducted in each country, as well as a comparative synthesis developed by the OBITEL coordinators (Immacolata Vasallo and Guillermo Orozco). Each OBITEL edition tackles a specific topic. The current year highlights the most relevant research conducted during the past twelve years of the Observatory.
