Postdoc Seminar Talks: The Royal Spanish College at the University of Bologna (1364) and the Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard


Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 6:30pm to 7:00pm


RCC Conference Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge MA

As the American Historical Association states, history is “the laboratory of human experience” and provides us not only “relevant skills and an enhanced capacity for informed citizenship, critical thinking, and simple awareness”, but also identity. This talk deepens on the historical model for the Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard, the Royal Spanish College or Domus Hispanica founded in 1364 at the University of Bologna (Italy) by Cardinal Gil de Albornoz. We will reflect on this Hispanic university heritage from a cultural point of view to explore the keys of its 650 years of existence.


Linked to the Postdoc Seminar in Innovative Teaching, different talks will be held at RCC concerning strategies for predocs and postdocs to be successful in the job market. The aim of this initiative is to show the best ways to improve your skill set and to develop ideas and mechanisms in both Spain and US.

Speaker: Manuel Parada López de Corselas – Postdoctoral Visiting Scholar, Department of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University.
