Announcing: ALBA Workshops for Everyone

ALBA is pleased to announce a new initiative as part of the Perry Rosenstein Cultural Series: Six expert-led interactive workshops about salient, fascinating, or controversial aspects of the Spanish Civil War, the International Brigades, and the U.S. volunteers who joined them. Modeled on our successful institutes for high school teachers, these workshops will be open to the general audience.

To ensure maximum interactivity, each 1.5-hour workshop will be capped at 20 participants, who will be asked to do a modest amount of reading or viewing beforehand (appr. two hours’ worth). The workshop will combine presentation with discussion. They’ll be conducted in English by two experts on the topic. They’ll be held on Thursday evenings (5-6:15 pm Eastern time).

Participants may sign up for any workshop for a nominal fee of $20 per person.

The first two workshops will take place this fall:

  • November 18, 5-6:15 pm Hemingway, the Spanish Civil War, and the Lincoln Brigade (with Peter N. Carroll and Sebastiaan Faber) | Sign up here.
  • December 16, 5-6:15 pm Eastern: Posters of the Spanish Civil War (with Jordana Mendelson and Sebastiaan Faber)
