The Cieza Social History Collective, a research and dissemination group based in the town of Cieza, takes up the lectures given in different parts of the Region, with a new impulse: its presentation in Madrid.
The group was born in 2017 with the aim of channeling a critical reflection on the subject of study of history, to place it in society.
â€śThe point of view forgotten in the manuals is the objective;
we refer to social research, to those stories that do not tell us, â€ťthey explain.
The artist who created the poster has been Pepe Moreno, who wanted to convey with his design from the first glance.
With a glance, the intensity of the colors and the resounding message of the forms generates in the viewer the need to know what awaits.
The creation has been done with plastic tools which has allowed him to experiment with the image and the light: â€śI didn't want to make a typical image;
using as an elementary figure the woman wanted to configure an expressive, real piece. â€ť
Moreno's works stand out for their delicacy, their careful dedication and the versatility of their forms, both in technique and presentation.
This new cycle of conferences is released in the wake of its objective, but this time focused on what â€žWomen countâ€ź â€ź.
On February 12, they premiere at the University of Murcia, at the Faculty of Education, together with the journalist and researcher Carlos Hernández de Miguel.
On March 5, 6 and 7 they will visit Madrid, specifically the Popular University of Tres Cantos, the Literary Meetings Group and the Association of Neighbors of Tres Cantos.
On March 13 they return to Cieza, to the Watchtower Club.
â€śThe dissemination is a fundamental point of our objective, for this, we wanted to combine two strategies: the recovery of the testimonies and the strategy in social networksâ€ť, they declare.
The group provides in their lectures brochures that have inserted brief pieces of string literature.
â€śWe wanted to rescue the popular literature that explains the historical facts that we narrate.
The testimonies and the facts that were forgotten in the manuals return contextualized on paper â€ť, they underline.
The Cieza Social History Collective also uses innovative procedures in the dissemination, such as audiovisual materials and social networks, to reach all audiences.
The recovery of testimonies seeks to recreate the voices â€žthat countâ€ź, those that left in coplillas and songs, with ink and poetry, their history.
Also the press of the time, as a primary source of great documentary value for historical study.
