Faculty Speaker Series – Dr. Francisco de Alba
November 11, 2020 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PMFree
Join us for the fourth Faculty Speaker Series event, which celebrates the scholarly research and creative works of Wheaton’s faculty members.
Dr. Francisco de Alba will explore how Madrid’s collective sensibility changed in the last part of Franco’s dictatorship. Sex, drugs, and fashion were ways in which people engaged in new behaviours that made the authoritarian and Catholic outlook of the regime obsolete, creating the basis for the transition to democracy.
This hour-long talk and moderated Q&A is based Dr. de Alba’s recently published book, Sex, Drugs, and Fashion in 1970s Madrid.
Pre-registration is required for this virtual event, which will be held via Zoom.
