A new issue of UPF’s digital magazine that reviews current issues in an innovative format, has recently been published. The main thread of the latest issue is the importance of culture as a strategic line and it includes reports and interviews on the topic along with expert opinions. It also includes an interview with Oriol Amat, the new rector of Pompeu Fabra University.
The spring issue of the magazine, available in three languages (Catalan, Spanish and English), devotes several sections to this subject. The "Community" section offers a comprehensive review of the main cultural activities carried out so far; "Zoom" includes an interview with Virginia Soler (BIRCH), a student on the bachelor’s degree in Global Studies, who protests against climate change through music. Then, offering further analysis, the "Kaleidoscope" section, entitled "University and culture" includes opinion articles by experts in the field of culture. Finally, the sections "On campus", with a report on the "Punktocràtor" artwork; "Tres60" with a piece on "El Maria Canals porta cua"; and "Quiztime", which focuses on the figure of Dostoyevsky, complete the cultural part.
