UNSA (Sala Mariano Melgar)
Read more

Digitalising 184 years of journalism has been a titanic task. This has involved processing thousands of articles, which were once news and now form a part of a legacy that is changing over time, always revealing something new. The El Comercio historical archive has made a technological leap through digitalisation, starting with the first printed issue of 4 May 1839. Juan Aurelio Arévalo Miró Quesada, the paper’s News Editor, talks about this project and invites festival-goers to browse this archive, accessible during the period of the Hay Festival. At this event he is accompanied by the Head Writer of the El Dominical supplement of El Comercio, Enrique Planas.
