Professor Manuel Lucena at RNE (Part I)

Written on April 13, 2016 by Manuel Lucena Giraldo in Arts & Cultures & Societies

Spanish history is the subject of today’s program, the first of a two-part conversation with Prof. Manuel Lucena Giraldo, author of “82 objetos que cuentan un país”.   From the excavations at Atapuerca to the Spanish national soccer team’s World Cup, from the medieval astrolab to Ramón y Cajal’s microscope, Prof. Lucena explains a new historiography that has expanded our view of Spain significantly.  In this first installment, he talks about material culture, some of the effects of empire, and emotion as a cultural measure.
