The Instituto Rumano de Cultura of Madrid, under the auspices of the Romanian Embassy, is organising a literary dialogue with Silvia Marcu (in the photo) and Pepa Roma, two important voices on the Spanish literary scene, on the books Las fronteras de Júpiter and Geopolítica de Rusia y de Europa oriental, by Silvia Marcu, next Wednesday at 7.30 p.m. at the Institute’s headquarters (Pl. del Cordón, 1, bajo derecha).
The event will consist of a talk on the importance of geopolitical current affairs in literary works. In today’s world, events take place on a daily basis that seem to be straight out of fiction.
Silvia Marcu is a senior scientist at the Institute of Economics, Geography and Demography (IEGD) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and Professor of the Master’s Degree in Geopolitics at the Carlos III University of Madrid. She completed her training with a NATO Atlantic Alliance Postdoctoral Fellowship for Young Doctors and a Master’s degree on European Union policies (Diplomatic School, Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs). A Spanish writer and journalist, Pepa Roma has worked for La Vanguardia, TVE and Diario 16, among others. As an essayist, Roma has published books on globalisation and on the craft of writing, both journalism and narrative.
