Abstract

This essay analyzes the Argentinian television serial Graduados (Graduates), which set a precedent by focusing on a character of Jewish background. This telenovela, which is highly nostalgic, portrays a character who departs from the stereotypical representation of a Jew as previously conceived in a multitude of other Argentine film and television texts. The Jewish character is depicted as an “Other” who is integrated into society, at a historical and social moment in which new minorities, or new “Others,” begin to be perceived and represented by cultural agents, such as local cinema and television. The Jew thus emerges as an “Other” who is already part of the hegemony, in contrast with new “minorities perceived as a menace.”
