    The Biblioteca Historicomèdica collaborates in the exhibition "Environmentalism archive" at La Nau

    The Biblioteca Historicomèdica collaborates with the exhibition "Environmentalism archive. Memory and visual culture of environmentalism in Valencia since the 1970s", which can be visited from 13 March to 9 June 2024 in the Sala Abierta of the Centro Cultural La Nau. The Library has lent more than 20 posters to the exhibition, which proposes a journey through the audiovisual and material memory of the ecologist movement in the Valencian Country, with a triple objective:


    • Address the limited attention given to environmentalism –particularly in its visual dimension – in historical discourses on contemporary Spain, specifically those related to the Transition to Democracy period.
    • Re-examine the recent history of social mobilisations in Spain by analysing a selection of materials produced by eco-social activism and critique, taking into account ecologism.
    • These reflections will be added to the proposals made by institutions in recent decades for the revision of archival technologies and the material and epistemological status of documents.


    The selected documentary, graphic and audiovisual materials from various archives produced and located in the Valencian Community from the 1970s to the present day are arranged in five nodes: ‘Agents of environmentalism’, ‘Nuclear power plants? No, thank you’, ‘From Albufera to the Valencian countryside’, ‘Save the planet’ and ‘Urban ecology and energy alternatives’.

    Next Thursday, February 29, 2024, at 5 p.m. will take place in the Assembly Hall of the Palau de Cerveró (headquarters in Valencia of the Institut Interuniversitari López Piñero) the presentation of the books:


    "Prevenir antes que curar. Las crisis sanitarias y las lecciones de la historia" (Preventing rather than curing. Health crises and the lessons of history) by Josep Bernabeu Mestre, professor of history of science at the Universitat d'Alacant.


    "Manual de historia de la medicina" (Handbook on history of medicine) coordinated by Josep L Barona, professor of history of science at the University of Valencia.


    J. Bernabeu's book looks at the past to explain the current health crises and to face possible future scenarios.


    The Manual coordinated by JL Barona is a work of collective consultation with the participation of twenty authors. It vindicates history as a tool for reflecting on the present.


    The event will be attended by the authors.
