Bilingual Societies and Sustainability: Spain’s other languages – KJCC at NYU

On Thursday, December 5th, Cristina hosts the fourth public lecture as King Juan Carlos I of Spain Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization at NYU: Bilingual Societies and Sustainability: Spain’s other languages.

This round table and poetry recital will focus on the idea of cultural sustainability through the experience of three mayor editors of Galician, Catalan and Basque literature. Francisco Castro, writer and director of Editorial Galaxia (Galicia), Rosa Rey, director of Angle Editorial and Capital Books (Catalunya) and Lorea Agirre, director of Jakin Magazine (Basque Country) will share their experiences of survival and resistance in a country with four official languages (Spain). This conversation aims to bring a different perspective on Spain’s other languages, and will combine music and poetry in Galician, Basque and Catalan.

The event, as always, is free an open to the public, and held at the KJCC Auditorium.
