Cicle Catalunya, laboratori d’Humanitats (2)

Querbus

Els Estudis d’Arts i Humanitats de la UOC organitzen la segona edició del Cicle Catalunya, laboratori d’Humanitats.

Es tracta d’un seguit de visites amb l’objectiu d’utilitzar Catalunya com un gran laboratori en el qual estudiar, debatre, analitzar, comentar i fer recerca sobre problemes i qüestions rellevants en l’àmbit dels estudis d’Arts i Humanitats. Es pretén també conèixer com el territori de Catalunya (i Catalunya nord inclosa) ha estat modelat per la història i l’art.

Com a forma de portar la universitat al territori, es programen un conjunt de visites (o “pràctiques de laboratori”). Aquest Cicle constarà, aquest any, dels següents itineraris:

Calendari del Cicle (març-juny, 2014):

  • Dissabte, 26 d’abril: Corbera d’Ebre. Els espais de la batalla de l’Ebre. Seminaris: La Guerra Civil espanyola.. Resum i materials.
  • Dissabte, 24 de maig: Sant Pere de Rodes. Castell de Verdera. Ruta dels dòlmens. Seminaris: Claus interpretatives del procés sobiranista català. Perspectiva crítica. Resum i materials.
  • Dissabte, 28 i diumenge 29 de juny: La ruta dels càtars. Castells de Querbús, Perapertusa, Puillorenç, Montsegur. Carcassona. Seminaris: Els càtars: heretgia, lluita socio-política i romanticisme. Resum i materials.

A l’estiu es publicaran les dates del semestre setembre-gener.

A més de les sortides, aquest semestre s’iniciaran unes jornades monogràfiques centrades en un tema sobre o des de la contemporaneïtat. Es realitzaran a la sala d’actes de la UOC (Avda. Tibidabo 39-43, 08035 Barcelona), duraran tot el dia (matí, de 9 a 14 h, i tarda de 16 a 18 h) i es dinarà al Cosmo Caixa. La primera està programada pel:

   Dissabte, 5 d’abril: L’art contemporani (1980-2014). Genealogia, temàtica i valoració. Resum i materials.

També s’està mirant d’organitzar tertúlies en diferents locals, preferentment llibreries, ateneus…, en les quals, després d’una breu presentació d’uns 10 minuts sobre un tema, s’invita a participar a tots els assistents, seguint les pautes d’un moderador. Si ho considereu oportú i interessant, podeu proposar (i ajudar a gestionar) la celebració d’aquestes tertúlies en alguna llibreria o local de la vostra ciutat, indicant data i possible públic assistent (es pressuposa que la cessió del local és gratuïta). Una d’aquestes tertúlies inicials es realitzarà, probablement, al nou local de la reoberta llibreria Documenta, c/ Pau Claris 144, Barcelona. El tema a presentar seria: El jo no existeix: som la nostra xarxa cerebral (a partir d’una reflexió sobre el llibre Eagleman, David (2014). Incógnito : las vidas secretas del cerebro. Barcelona. Anagrama. (Col.Argumentos, 449 ). 4ª impr. 352 pàgs.

Oportunament s’indicaran les dates i el lloc.

Informació sobre el Cicle:

La selecció de les visites es duu a terme amb els següents criteris:

– Diversitat territorial: s’intenta que abasti la totalitat del territori.
– Integració de les diverses ciències humanes i socials, de manera que cada visita s’articuli al voltant de la història, l’art, la literatura, el paisatge i la gastronomia.
– Amplitud cronològica: des de la prehistòria fins a l’actualitat.
–  Una durada que, en funció de la visita, pot oscil·lar d’un matí, a una jornada o, en algun cas, un cap de setmana.
– Estudis monogràfics: cada visita estarà dedicada a un tema central, tot i que no es descarta el tractament de més d’un tema.
– En cada visita es duran a terme un o més seminaris, en els quals es comentaran i debatran els materials didàctics elaborats per a cada itinerari i que seran accessibles en línia des d’aquest blog.

Les visites són totalment gratuïtes i obertes a tothom. Només s’hauran de pagar les entrades a museus, esglésies… que ho requereixin, així com els àpats en aquells itineraris que els incloguin. Per això, és aconsellable dur sempre el carnet d’estudiant de la UOC (si és el cas) així com inscriure’s en l’activitat, per tal de poder fer les reserves corresponents. Els desplaçaments van a càrrec dels participants.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  2. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  5. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  6. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  7. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  9. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
