Public engagement

I brought to the University of Exeter the exhibition 'Spain and England. Juan Luis Vives and Thomas More', which ran from 13 April - 13 May 2015 at The Street Gallery, Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies. The exhibition was opened by the Spanish Ambassador to the United Kingdom, as part of the 60th anniversary conference of the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland, a conference for which I was an organiser.

The exhibition, curated by Prof. Enrique García Hernán of the Instituto de Historia at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, and generously supported by Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs of the Embassy of Spain in the United Kingdom, Acción Cultural Española, Consorci de Museos de la Comunitat Valenciana, Fundació Jaume II El Just, and the College of Humanities at the University of Exeter, premièred at the Centro del Carmen in Valencia in 2014, and examined Renaissance Humanism across Europe and, in particular, in Spain and England through the famous figures of Juan Luis Vives and Sir Thomas More. The exhibition comprised videos, family trees, portraits, maps, flags, and explanatory panels.
