New Spanish writing, by Miranda France

New Spanish Books

One of the great attractions of learning a foreign language – especially one your parents don’t speak – is that feeling of a door opening onto secret territory.

Suddenly the hours spent poring over grammar books and verb tables yield their reward: here is a new world of landscapes, characters, sights and sounds one need not share with immediate family and friends.

I have a bad memory for fiction, but the first Spanish novels I read, at about fifteen, have stayed with me better than English novels read at the same time. Thanks to those books, I travelled to Spain long before actually setting foot on Spanish soil.

Españoles en el mundo: Dublin

El 20 de October de 2010 en Spain in Dublin, Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

Es la ciudad de U2, de Oscar Wilde, de la cerveza negra y de San Patricio. “Españoles en el mundo” visita la capital de Irlanda.

Un lugar lleno de estudiantes que buscan mejorar su inglés, y de extranjeros que buscan empleo en un país, hasta hace poco, emigrante.

Por sus calles nos guían seis compatriotas. Ellos nos invitan a conocer el ambiente juvenil, la fiesta, la música y la gastronomía.

Levantemos nuestra pinta porque nos vamos a Dublín.


Transcultural: the cinema of encounter

El 19 de October de 2010 en Cultural Activities, Spanish Cinema por | Sin comentarios

film series at IC Dublin

The contemporary documentary cycle “Transcultural: through the eyes of others” brings together a series of films which tackle the migratory convergence taking place in today’s Spain.

The four documentaries in this selection have been made by independent production companies, and each one visibly attempts to a give new perspective on the meeting of cultures, highlighting both problems and solutions.

The common thread in these productions is the need to discuss issues which are right up to the minute, and to shed light on the tensions and assimilations inherent in the collision of cultures.

The documentaries in this cycle propose answers to the age-old problem of identity, and, in clear terms, set out to lay the foundations for a better future in which we can all integrate through dialogue.


Felipe Gonzalez “on the run” and Franco’s soap opera

El 13 de October de 2010 en Books, Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

I recall a day in 1968 which was exceptional only in that two interesting events happened in the space of a few hours which were otherwise repeated separately several times. At 4pm or thereabouts I recall receiving in my small flat, with junior colleagues from the British, French, Italian and German embassies, Felipe González, then a young clandestine trade union organiser. He briefed us on his political views and plans and disappeared into the streets, where he was “on the run”…

Celtic culture in Ireland and Spain

El 5 de October de 2010 en Library, Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

“Did the Irish come from Spain?” is the title of an article by John Carey which focuses on the myth of the Milesians, the descendents of Mil Espáine, who according to Irish mythology arrived in Ireland from Galicia.

Whether fact or fiction, what is true is that Spain and Ireland have maintained a series of connections throughout the ages, about which little is known today.

This month the library invites you to explore the origins of these connections dating back thousands of years.

Come and discover the traces of the Celtic civilisations which shaped the evolution of both countries, and in doing so, understand a little bit better who we are today.

Best of Young Spanish-Language Novelists | Online Only | Granta Magazine

Granta’s Best Young Novelists issues have been some of the magazine’s most important – ever since the first ‘Best of Young British Novelists’ in 1983, which featured stories by Salman Rushdie, A. N. Wilson, Adam Mars-Jones and Martin Amis.

There have since been two more Best of Young British Novelists lists, in 1993 and 2003, and lists for American novelists in 1996 and 2007. The titles have become milestones on the literary landscape, predicting talent as much as spotting it.

El 10 de January de 2010 en Sin categoría por | 1 comentario

El MUVA (Museo Virtual de Arte) El País es una iniciativa de la crítica de arte Alicia Haber apoyada por el periódico uruguayo El País. El primer proyecto de este museo virtual fue lanzado en 1997, concebido, diseñado y ejectuado por uruguayos. En sus salas, consagradas a la creación contemporánea uruguaya, se exhiben obras provenientes de colecciones privadas difíciles de ver en otro sitio. La visita virtual del museo permite un recorrido de 360 grados y una vista detallada de las obras, que presentan además distintos vínculos con información multimedia sobre la obra en cuestión y el artista.

 El museo, premiado como uno de los mejores sitios web de Uruguay, merece una visita.
