Getting prepared!

Here we are, last week before the arrival of the inmmersive, fascinanting, hipnotic "Spaces" conference which will be held 2,3 and 4 of October in the University of Murcia. While everyone is  finisihing their speeches, here it is a fascinanting piece that it has been resonating into my mind in the last days. The powerful trailer of Adam Curtis collaboration with Massive Attack called  (obviously) "Adam curtis vs Massive Attack".

Memory, forgetting and the idea of space, all together during the Manchester Festival of Music. 

Enjoy this last week before our glamorous conference! a storm is coming!

Hi all! My name is Jose Manuel Sala, I am currently a PhD student at the Culture and Media Studies department at the University of Murcia.  I finished my degree at English and Culture Studies at the University of Leeds and I studied my Master of Contemporary Literature from Leeds Metropolitan University. I am starting to develop my study about memory and identity represented in television series of the last decade.

In my blogging I will post some brief articles, YouTube videos, twisted comments, rhetorical observations about reality, technology, art, literature or any simply random suggestions to anyone studying the same aspects of the cultural aspects of the day by day. I will try to justify (in a very polite way) why authors such as Jean Baudrillard,  Derrida, Adorno or Freud can be important in our society in order to (try to) understand how  people can connect to each other. Culture Studies is one of the most enriching and innovating aspects to rediscover every aspect of our lives. 

Question is, are you ready to explore it with me?
