Hello and welcome to our next Social Science activity !! Note this activity is in Spanish.

This is the first of a 3-talk series on the Artic: "Explorers of the impossible. The conquest of the Artic” organized by the foundation in collaboration with the Spanish Geographic Society.
This one is given by Javier Reverte, a well-known Spanish writer, journalist, and avid traveller (En mares salvajes. Un viaje al Ártico Protected content Banderas en La Niebla ( Protected content ) so it may fill up quick. Unfortunately, these talks are in Spanish.

(Information from the Foundation´s site)
The Artic, once a land to be explored, unknown and mysterious, has now become a geostrategic spot where important "battles" are being fought for the future of the planet.

The story of its conquest is a fascinating tale of the frenzied and hellish race that left shipwrecks, murders, suicides, and even cannibalism in its wake.

And who better than Javier Reverte to tells us all about it?? Afterwards, we´ll discuss the talks (or not) over drinks somewhere nearby.
