    Jacques Herzog and Luis Fernández-Galiano
    Intellectual Autobiography
    1:24:09NOVEMBER 14, 2017

    El arquitecto Jacques Herzog presenta, en diálogo con Luis Fernández-Galiano, un recorrido por su trayectoria creativa a través de varias obras significativas: desde los comienzos caracterizados por el empleo de materiales naturales y formas elementales y minimalistas, hasta la evolución hacia elementos decorativos concebidos de una manera clásica y la reconversión de edificios industriales, manteniendo la estructura de las construcciones, como la Tate Modern de Londres (2000), CaixaForum Madrid (2008) y la Filarmónica de Elba en Hamburgo (2015). Afirma Herzog que una de las cuestiones fundamentales de la arquitectura es la sintonización con el espacio y la aceptación del público, pues es lo que otorga vida a la obra.

    Dramatised reading and comment of the Song of Songs
    24:36OCTOBER 10, 2017

    El Cantar de los Cantares es uno de los libros más breves de cuantos componen el Antiguo Testamento y su contenido ha sido objeto de multitud de traducciones, comentarios e interpretaciones. Uno de los factores esenciales para su inclusión en la Biblia hebrea fue la interpretación alegórica que identificaba al amado y la amada con el dios de Israel y su pueblo. Y aunque el mundo cristiano lo heredó junto con su interpretación alegórica, posteriormente irían surgiendo también interpretaciones literales de los textos de los poemas. Los actores Lidia Otón y Ernesto Arias leen los textos del Cantar, traducidos y comentados por la profesora investigadora del CSIC Emilia Fernández Tejero. La intervención musical está a cargo de la arpista Sara Águeda.

    Chinese and Pre-Colombian Ceramics
    1:03:02APRIL 25, 2017

    As a result of its easy use and low material cost, ceramics has left us with many valuable artistic testimonies; moreover, being made out of clay –available in all geographical regions– it is also an object of study for learning about the most diverse cultures. The Director of the Instituto Confucio de Madrid and lecturer at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Isabel Cervera, takes us on a journey through the history of China through ceramics and its uses: domestic, decorative, religious and funereal. Miguel Rivera Dorado, an archaeologist and Professor at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, approaches the different pre-Colombian people in order to analyse the multiplicity of styles and the workmanship that were present on the American continent. A summary of both lectures is presented.

    Jane Austen’s “Little England”
    1:17:57MAY 30, 2017

    In this second session in the series about Jane Austen, Professor Fernando Galván introduces the English writer’s novels using a biographical account focusing on the author’s family relationships, places and personal anecdotes. Amont the works discussed are several of the works written in her youth, such as Love and Friendship and Lady Susan, and the early long novels –Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice– as well as her last finished novel, Persuasion. The presenter concludes, “beyond the enjoyment her novels provide upon a first reading is the profundity of the moral concepts of these heroines”, and this is why their atemporal nature surpasses the boundaries of social changes.

    Jane Austen, in the Transition from the Eighteenth to the Nineteenth Centuries
    1:03:51MAY 25, 2017

    On the bicentenary of the death of Jane Austen (Steventon, 1775 - Winchester, 1817), the Professor of English Philology at the Universidad de Alcalá Fernando Galván outlines the period known as “the long eighteenth century”, between 1688 eand 1815, in which the historical and cultural context of the author is set. Important historical events occurred during this period, such as the American, French and Industrial revolutions, although these have no place in the English author’s novels. The presenter mentions several literary figures contemporary to Austen and whose influence can be seen in her works, such as Daniel Defoe, Samuel Richardson and Henry Fielding.
