Library of Alexandria

One of the most important questions for any student of the ancient world to address is 'how do we know what we know about antiquity?' Whether we're thinking about urban architecture, or love poetry, or modern drama, a wide range of factors shape the picture of antiquity that we have today. This free course, Library of Alexandria, encourages you to reflect upon and critically assess those factors. Interpreting an ancient text, or a piece of material culture, or understanding an historical event, is never a straightforward process of 'discovery', but is always affected by things such as translation choices, the preservation (or loss) of an archaeological record, or the agendas of scholars.

You don't need to start with an idea. You need time and space to write, and you need to show up regularly. Find Time to Write will help you to show up.

HABITACIONES DEL OLVIDO. SOMALILANDIA, VENEZUELA, NÍGER (Capítulo inédito) (Spanish Edition)

Todo buen viajero tendra una imposible lista de habitaciones olvidadas, pertenecientes a cualquiera de las cadenas hoteleras fieles a un modelo unico de ambiente impersonal, todas ideticas y frias, indistinguibles unas de otras y donde las anecdotas personales suplanta las memoria de los locales donde ocurrieron.

Pero muy pocos viajeros conocen estas otras habitaciones del olvido, reconditos y desconocidos parajes donde se suceden historias que nos asoman con vertigo a lo mas oscuro del ser humano; pero, con todo, siempre hay lugar para la esperanza, de la mano de quienes, ante la ineficacia oficial, actuan a titulo individual para tratar de paliar el horror que otros han sembrado.

De la mano de Vicente Romero nos llega Capitulo inedito de HABITACIONES DE SOLEDAD Y MIEDO. Corresponsal de guerra, de Vietnam a Siria, donde el autor ofrece una narracion apasionada y conmovedora que describe los mas erraticos comportamientos humanos en situaciones limite: desde las guerras de Vietnam o Angola hasta la epidemia de ebola en Sierra Leona en 2014 y los conflictos belicos actuales en Somalia o Siria, pasando por las guerras civiles en la ex Yugoslavia o el atentado contra las Torres Gemelas.

En sus paginas se revelan los entretelones del trabajo periodistico, en situaciones ante las cuales el unico estado de lucidez posible es la perplejidad, al tiempo que se retrata una sorprendente galeria de personajes cuyos comportamientos resultan pateticos, incluso comicos, como la vida misma.
