Women’s Position During the Franco Dictatorship

Last 20th of May, I spoke about women’s position during the Franco dictatorship in Spain. It happened at La Academia, a language school in Fukuoka, sponsored by Fukuoka’s Association of Friends of Spain.

La Academia

I talked in Japanese about this period in Spanish history for almost two hours, from the most general things to the most feminine facts. We had a great conversation and learnt a lot –of course I did learn too.

In case you’d like to download it, here’s a document written in Japanese with an outline of the talk and some pictures so that you can get into the context: La mujer en el franquismo.pdf.

Index:

  • Background for the Spanish Civil War
  • Spanish Civil War
  • Repression
  • Woman’s rights
  • The Falange and its female auxiliary
  • The Catholic Church
  • Morality and thought at the time: the angel in the house

Thanks a lot to all attendants and organizers! I hope we can meet again soon.

My lecture at WordCamp Fukuoka 2011

my classroom during the lecture

Last Saturday I did my lecture at WordCamp Fukuoka 2011 and attended as many other lectures as I could. It’s thought that about 400 people came, and the organization did something that was new to me – there were many short lectures, so many that there were two at a time despite them being short. I think today’s ease of communication (even after the event ends) makes this way of scheduling events very effective, and we gained a lot of variety.

So here are my slides. I spoke about things one should think before starting a podcast, and I showed an easy way to podcast using WordPress and Feedburner.

I guess you’ve noticed they are all in Japanese, but if you want to read about this in English please check my notes for a previous similar lecture.

Here you can find video footage for all lectures and presentations that were held at the big classroom, and here are links to the documents all the speakers are sharing. You can also read at pepinismo something more personal about the event. Thank everyone very much, and I hope we can meet at the next WordCamp!
