Event description

Description

EVENT IN ENGLISH

Luke Stegemann was born in Brisbane and raised in Queensland, southern New South Wales and the ACT. After first visiting Spain in 1984, he later spent long periods living in Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. He has worked in media, publishing and higher education, and as a Spanish-English translator, in both Australia and Spain. He was formerly the managing editor of 'The Adelaide Review', and the founding editor of 'The Melbourne Review'. He has written widely on Spanish art, history, culture and politics, and now lives and works in rural south-east Queensland. He continues to spend time each year in Spain. He has recently published 'The Beautiful Obscure', a remarkable work which analyses aspects of Spanish cultural influence from an Australian viewpoint. In this conversation, Stegemann will talk about synergies and divergences between both countries with past, present and future perspectives, all seen within the framework of his own love of both countries.

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.
