Juliana and Posteguillo, protagonists in May of the Narratives Classroom at the University of Valencia

Enric Juliana and Santiago Posteguillo meet in May at the University of Valencia through the Narratives Classroom. The La Nau Cultural Center will host literary gatherings with one of the country's most important political analysts and the award-winning historical novel writer.

The discussion with Enric Juliana will be on Wednesday at 7 p.m., in the Aula Magna. Under the title 'Twenty years in Madrid DF. A political history of today's Spain', Juliana will share a table with the journalists Paco Cerdà and Salvador Enguix and the coordinator of the Narratives Classroom, the UV professor, Cristina García Pascual. Deputy to the director of 'La Vanguardia', Enric Juliana has been writing from Madrid for 20 years. Precisely the vision of this time is what has inspired his latest book: 'Spain, the pact and the fury' (2024), the chronicle of a long and turbulent period that goes from the 11-M attacks to the amnesty legislature. Two decades in which we have suffered an unprecedented economic and territorial crisis or have been confined at home due to a pandemic. All these episodes are recounted in Juliana's chronicle and in the gathering organized by the University of Valencia.

After the pulse of current events, on Thursday, May 23, the Narratives Classroom of the UV immerses itself in the historical novel with a colloquium in which Santiago Posteguillo will present his latest novel 'Maldita Roma', which after the success of 'Roma soy me', continues the saga about Julius Caesar. Posteguillo (Premio Planeta, 2018), philologist, linguist, European doctor from the University of Valencia and currently a full professor at the Jaume I University of Castellón, delves into the price of power through Julio César. The gathering will be held, at 7 p.m., in the Capella de la Sapiència, of the La Nau Cultural Center.

The Narratives Classroom of the University of Valencia, dependent on the Vice-Rector's Office for Culture and Society, is a bridge between literature and university life, directing its actions towards the promotion of literary creation and the promotion of reading and writing through different activities such as talks or meetings with writers, conference cycles, round tables and writing and reading workshops. Its programming is aimed at both the university community and society in general and is headed by Professor Cristina García Pascual, professor of Philosophy.
