Ten days after the beginning of Els Juliols of the University of Barcelona, the amount of registered students is over 1.600. These figures bring an absolute record, since there had never been such a high number in registrations in any of the previous editions, and it can keep on rising since registration is still open for all the courses to be taught next week, from the 17th to the 21st of July.

This year, seventy courses have been programmed, and are aimed at all audiences, covering current and relevant topics in almost all knowledge areas. With lecturers coming from different fields, university and professional areas, public and private sectors, the offering is structured into four main areas: Arts and humanities, Social sciences, Resources and strategies, Nature sciences and health.

Some of the courses that generated more interest in this edition of Els Juliols are  El tiempo y sus metamorfosis, Arte, literatura, música y pensamiento, El que volem saber de la normativa del català, and Estetització de la política i politització de l’art.

 

“My experience in Els Juliols was great and I will repeat every year if I can”

“This is the first time I take up a course in Els Juliols, but now that I have tried it, I will repeat every year if I can”, says Lluïsa Vinyals, who was in the course L'evolució de la imatge cinematogràfica: del fotograma al cinema en 360 graus, and is very satisfied with it. “I chose this course because I love cinema and knew it would be fun, but it was better than I thought. Lecturers were excellent; we had fun and the lessons were fun too, interactive, dynamic. It was not boring at all, quite the contrary”.

 

Courses for everyone

One of the outstanding courses for next week is Sapiens, la metodologia d’El Bulli Foundation, with the participation of the Chef and Director of El Bulli Foundation, Ferran Adrià. In this course, the team of El Bulli Lab will talk about the Sapiens methodology and the projects in El Bulli Foundation aiming to promote a profession, a company, a field, discipline and sector.

Another course in this offering for the third week is Literatura i sèries de televisió: l’imaginari col·lectiu de la medicina i la ciència, which has been successful for years. It aims to study the medical and scientific novel, ranging from the pioneer classics in medical best-sellers and narrative resources in the scientific story to the function of literature and medical and scientific tv series as a source for dissemination. Participants in this course are the writer Màrius Serra; the cultural journalist Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, the TV series critic Toni de la Torre, and the Head of Communications in the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute and radio journalist, Daniel Arbós.

Moreover, registration for the course Medicina para el cuerpo mente y las emociones para la vida cotidiana is still available. This course is  taught in Viladecans and in brings a journey through meditation with mindfulness, yoga, zen, and our voices to have a better and healthier life.
