In recent decades, several processes of digital and technological
convergence have made possible the mutation of narrative formats and the
appearance of new forms in the field of communication. Non-fiction
narratives were not alien to these transformations. On the contrary,
many documentary and journalistic projects began to assume interactive
and transmedia formats and involved experimentation with multiple
languages, the development of participatory strategies and stories that
spread across different platforms and media.
In Latin America, non-fiction has deep roots, sustained in the writing
of its great chroniclers and in the audiovisual productions of its
schools of political and social documentary. This stamp of identity can
also be traced in interactive formats, sometimes referred to as webdocs,
idocs, interactive multimedia documentaries and even in documentary or
journalistic transmedia projects.
Interactive and transmedia documentary in Latin America has now been
under development and in consolidation for over two decades. Throughout
the continent’s extensive geography, it is possible to recognize some
production poles that are very active in the search for innovative
formats and in experimentation with new technologies to tell stories of
the order of reality. This issue of Hipertext.net proposes a critical
perspective from which to map the state of the art while historicizing
documentary productions, analyzing their intrinsic characteristics,
reviewing their experiences of narrative design, circulation, and
consumption, and identifying the challenges and opportunities that arise
for interactive and transmedia non-fiction in this region of the world.
On this occasion, the guest editors have had the pleasure of inviting
interactive and transmedia documentary researchers and producers to
submit their proposals. The topics proposed are for guidance purposes
only and are not exclusive:
• Interactive and transmedia documentary in Latin America: theoretical
approaches, history, evolution, and conceptual definitions.
