The variety in the titles responds to the wide diversity in knowledge fields that the Universitat de València includes in its programme Unisocietat. In this sense, Benetússer locals will be able to attend a conference on the history –truncated by terrorism– of some university members involved in politics. In Cullera, however, the musical piece originated in Cocentaina and world-wide exported will be analysed.
The 12 offices of Unisocietat hold these two conferences given by teaching and research staff from the Universitat de València during this month. The monthly series of presentations complement the academic year of Unisocietat and it is free entry for the locals of each town and the nearby. This initiative is economically supported by Caixa Popular.
