Darwin in Sevilla

Darwin in Sevilla

Together with Juan Arroyo, Encarnacion Aguilar and Teo Marañon, I’m organizing a seminar series at University of Sevilla to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin. For the event (25-27 Feb 2009) we have set up also an exhibit about evolution and evolutionary biology, including wonderful classic books from the University Library in relation to the subject: Linnaeus, Cuvier, Buffon, Azara, the first translations into spanish of Darwin’s books, etc. In addition we are including in the exhibit an homage to the early darwinists in Sevilla, around the figure of Antonio Machado y Nuñez, a naturalist from the late XIX century that had an enormous influence in the city and the university, and in the dissemination of evolutionary theories in Spain.
