In April 2022, NYU’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center turned 25.
To commemorate this milestone, we introduce ATRIUM: Voices from the KJCC, an oral history project that will capture memories of the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center through the recorded testimonies of our past Chairs going as far back as the 80’s, before the Center was as we know it today: a robust cultural and educational institution that hosts both the Andrés Bello and King Juan Carlos Chairs.
The series continues with an interview with Luis Fernández Cifuentes, Academic Year 1995/1996 King Juan Carlos I of Spain Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization.
The interview was filmed at NYU Madrid by the Fundación Rey Juan Carlos I, edited by the creative team of Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger.
We hope you enjoy the Atrium series.
In the works are episodes with Mexican writer Carmen Boullosa, Fall 2002 Andrés Bello Chair in Latin American Cultures and Civilizations; and virtuoso musician Cristina Pato, who was King Juan Carlos Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization during the academic year 2019/ 20, among others.
Stay tuned for our anniversary activities. You have been a part of the Center’s history!
