Taught by Laura G de Rivera, science journalist The new term comes to surprise us with an innovative, different, attractive program. It will be a seminar that will delve into the exciting -you’ll see- world of science. Health, technology, psychology and the environment are the guidelines that Laura G. De Rivera has chosen to describe with exact and natural language everything that current scientific studies represent for us and our world. These classes are based on her experience and work as a scientific journalist for the speaker and are based on reports and interviews that she has done with the researchers themselves and the main experts on each topic. They cover different branches of science: health, environment, psychology, technology.
From antiquity to today’s world
Dr. Francisco Hidalgo Fernandez
University of Malaga – SEHISP
How, for and why do we dress? That is what we will discover throughout the seminar that opens the new year. It will be a historical journey led by Francisco Hidalgo who, in the ten sessions of the course, will recount and make visible the evolution of clothing and the importance of historical, social and economic changes, as responsible for new patterns in clothing.
Taught by the architect Ignacio Jáuregui
In this new and attractive seminar, the architect, urban planner and traveler Ignacio Jáuregui shares an intimate and different vision of the city. He will reveal to us the beauty of order and chaos; geographic influence; the value of ports, squares and walks; the attraction of the sacred to end up talking about a dream, sometimes a nightmare, called urban utopia. Ten sessions where we will get to know the cities chosen according to a more personal than objective criterion. There are not all of them, impossible, but each of them contains an entire world.
Taught by María Dolores Cebrián Sotomayor, graduate in Art History
In this seminar, María Dolores Cebrián takes an innovative approach to a century of contrasts, advances and setbacks. A century, the nineteenth , cradle of great painters, architects, writers; victim of wars, divisions and losses; spectator of social changes, of the development of cities, of the advance of the bourgeoisie; a paradise for travelers in search of exoticism… An essential century, organizer of the movements that shaped the growth, with ups and downs and at their own pace, of the country.
We open a new season of our very attractive seminars
The seminar on sculpture with which AMUM opens the season is an evocative
journey through time, in which we will learn about the history of an art
that discovers and brings out the beauty hidden inside the materials.

AMUM, always in love with culture, has the pleasure of inviting you to this magnificent seminar given by Dr. José Ignacio Mayorga Chamorro, which will take us to a world, the Ibero-American, and to an art, the colonial. A walk that, section by section, will discover the exciting artistic territories, marked by miscegenation, polychromy or imaginative creation, which arise from the union of different experiences, capable of being understood thanks to that universal language that is art.
Professor : Lucía Reigal (UMA), who talks about the history of men and women who over the centuries have contributed to the world as it is today. Napoleon, Victoria of England, Carlos V, Hanna Arendt, Eva Perón …
What unifies these people? What are their differences? What did they do at all times to remain inscribed in the collective memory? The answers reveal a different point of view of history, very attractive, interwoven by their attitudes and by the interconnection between nations.
