Mon, 19/10/2015

One of ICE Andalucía TECH's internationalisation projects, the María Zambrano Center for Transatlantic Studies, has organised the 2nd Transatlantic Tribunal for 20th and 27th October, in collaboration with the Doctorate Programme in Education and Communication. On this occasion, the Tribunal will focus on Communication and Education in Latin America and Spain.

The event's first day will take place in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Communication Sciences (11.30 a.m.). It will be chaired by the Vice Chancellor of University Extension, María Chantal Pérez, and the Dean of the Faculty of Communication Sciences and Director of the Aula María Zambrano, Juan Antonio García.

Then, the General Director of the International Centre of Higher Education on Communication for Latin America, (CIESPAL by its acronym in Spanish), Francisco Sierra Caballero, will give the conference on the “Theory of Educational Communication”. Specialising in Communicology and Latin America, Francisco Sierra has undertaken several R&D projects throughout his academic career for the European Commission and the National Plan for Research and Development in Spain, among others. In his lecture, he will also discuss the different activities that CIESPAL performs and will present the Revista Chasqui, a quarterly journal that promotes critical opinion on communication in Latin America. He will also be accompanied by Bernardo Díaz, director of the University of Malaga's Department of Journalism and the UNESCO Chair of Communication, which collaborate in this activity.

On 27th October, the 2nd Tribunal will continue in the Salón de Grados in the Faculty of Education Science from 4.30 p.m. The coordinator of the Doctorate Programme on Education and Social Communication, Nieves Blanco, will chair the opening of the event and present University of Malaga professor, Carlos Pérez Ariza, who will give the lecture “The effort for freedom between both shores. An approach to the American epic for independence."

To conclude the cycle, the University of Malaga professors, Inmaculada Postigo Gómez and Ana Jorge Alonso will present the documentary “Warmi. Notes on La Paz and its women”, the fruit of their international cooperation projects in Bolivia. This film diary, created by Alejandro Alvarado and Concha Barquero, gives insight into the situation of women in Bolivia, following the country's transformation in recent years. It originated from the close relationship between the University of Malaga's academic community and Bolivia.
