Joan Marí Cardona lecture series returns 1–7 Oct.

cartell 2021 jornades estudis locals JMC The Formentera Office of Heritage is pleased to report that from 1 to 7 October, the Joan Marí Cardona Local Studies Lecture Series will celebrate its tenth year. Lectures start at 8.15pm in the conference hall of the Formentera Day Centre. Admission is free and reservations are not required.

Heritage councillor Raquel Guasch, who pointed out that last year’s event was called off due to the pandemic, welcomed the chance to host the series anew, and promised research-minded attendees they were in for a treat: “These talks encompass a wide range of fields and highlight comprehensive and fascinating content that brings us closer to the history of Formentera”.
Guasch said that 2021 has already seen the release of two issues of the review Formentera which spotlight talks from 2015 and 2016, and plans are in place for others still to come, including a special publication with articles from the talks that were called off in 2020.

The 2021 programme:
- Friday 1 October: Protección, conservación y difusión de la arquitectura vernácula (Protection, conservation and dissemination of local architecture). With Camila Mileto and Fernando Vegas, doctors of architecture and professors at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
- Monday 4 Oct.: Ús de sòl rústic de Formentera (Rural land use on Formentera). With Vicent Prats Ramon, senior technician of spatial planning at the Consell d’Eivissa.
- Tuesday 5 Oct.: Malalties i epidèmies de les Pitiüses (Diseases and epidemics in the Pine Islands). With Fanny Tur, historian and archivist at the Ajuntament d’Eivissa.
- Wednesday 6 Oct.: Les plantes per a la salut (Plants and wellness). With Josep Colonques Garrido, acupuncturist, naturist, communicator and author of numerous publications on natural health.
- Thursday 7 Oct.: Repressió institucional franquista a Formentera: la Causa General (Institutional repression under Franco on Formentera: the General Cause). With Francisca Riera Escandell, historian.

The Teachers’ Resource Centre (Centre de Professorat de Formentera, CPF) has included the lecture series in its professional development catalogue so the Balearic Ministry of Education will validate associated credits.
