“WAR, REVOLUTION AND SOCIETY IN THE RIO DE LA PLATA, 1808-1810: THOMAS KINDER’S NARRATIVE OF A JOURNEY TO MADEIRA, MONTEVIDEO AND BUENOS AIRES”:
Book Launch by Malyn Newitt, Emeritus Professor of History at King’s College.
Date: Thursday 11 March 5-7.30 pm
Venue: The Jessell Room – Senate House, First Floor, Malet Street, WC1E 7HU
The book contains the narrative –published for the first time- of an English banker’s voyage to Buenos Aires and Montevideo in 1808-10. His journey to the Río de la Plata followed the ill-fated British attempts to capture Buenos Aires in 1806-7. He obtained first hand information about the campaigns of Beresford and Whitelocke and became familiar with all the leading figures of the revolutionary period. His narrative constitutes a very significant first-hand commentary on the beginnings of the revolution in Montevideo and Buenos Aires and provides a detailed description of the economy and society of the two cities on the eve of their independence from Spain.
This event is free.

Iasparra's photographic works create ambiguous and only partially defined enviroments, where finete detail merges into a seemingly infinite enviroment. Although his images may reference natural form, they evolve into large-scale abstract frames. Together they create sense of enclosure and disorientation, raising fundamental question regarding our perception of time and space.
There will be a special presentation of the exhibition on Wednesday 24th of February from 6.30 to 9 pm.
