We live in a new golden age of the tv series. Globalization and internet have increased its social impact and capacity to shape our way of life, leading their creators to be called “the great narrators of the 21st century”.

The episodic narrative form, common in early popular literature, offers many creatives opportunities and some potential pitfalls (eg. lack of narrative unity) in a context already conditioned by marketing and audience demands.

The purpose of the conference is to study the image of fatherhood in television series, using it as a window upon the family and its popular representation.
