    When: 25th of January 2022, 18:00 h

    Abstract:

     

    The colloquium offers two papers of 30 min contrasting the scientific/educative and the social/political developments of Catalonia since 1978 with the common, but multi-disciplinary focus on strategies of identity building in the Catalan society of the post-Franco period. While Tischler’s paper will deal with Catalan medievalism in the mirror of national and international large scale projects since the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and scientific congresses and exhibitions since the 1980s, Wimmer’s paper will be engaged in the more recent developments of Catalan public and private education, media activities, and literary production between ‘nationalism’ and ‘globalism’. The common point of both papers will be an analysis of the risks and chances of shaping Catalonia’s future as a ‘proper nation’ within the networks of European and global scientific research and socio-political identity building.

     

    The ICREA colloquia are a great way to learn about remote fields of research from our best experts. We usually have two speakers, who offer their opinions on the same subject from different angles. They are open to all ICREAs and their guests.
