“Las sinsombrero: The women who dared”, delivered by Dr. Beatriz Caballero Rodriguez, Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Strathclyde.
Public talk organized by the Hispanic Society of Scotland to commemorate International Women’s Day.
During the 1920s and 30s, a daring group of Spanish women openly defied tradition and expectation by becoming outstanding artists, thinkers and leaders. For a brief moment in history, they were integrated in the same intellectual and social circles with men and gained the respect and recognition for their contributions. This was not to last, as the Spanish Civil War would soon dissolve and scatter this group of outstanding women. The purpose of this talk is to shed light into their identities, contributions and individual journeys.
The event will take place on Thursday 7th March at 7pm in the Livingston Tower Building room 401.
Please note the talk will be offered in Spanish, so it be a good opportunity for those of you who are keen to practice your language skills.
