Changes to the Catalan Panel

Due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a change in our Catalan panel in the afternoon. 

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Laia Manonelles from the University of Barcelona to our panel, which will focus on the so-calledVampiress of the Raval, the notorious case of Enriqueta Mart√≠, a woman who led a double life; prostitution and pimping out children by day and appearing in finery in the upper echelons of turn-of-the-century Barcelona society by night. Together with Merce Saumell, she will discuss the case of this grotesque 'social monster', and on the one hand bring a sociological analysis of her behaviour, whilst on the other Merce Saumell will discuss her reappearance in theatre in Barcelona on the centenary of her death.

This panel promises to be a fascinating insight into one of Spain's most grotesque characters; a true urban monster, and we are very grateful to Dr. Manonelles for agreeing to step in and complete this very promising panel.
