Jordi Miralda-Escudé

Among my personal interests are:

  • Catalan culture, literature, music. See my page on Ramon Llull .
    I like especially the Catalan singers Raimon and Lluís Llach. These are singers of the generation of ``la Nova Cançó'', a group of singers who brought a political message to the Catalan-speaking nations (Catalonia, València, Mallorca) during the last years of the Franco regime and afterwards, and helped to revitalize Catalan culture.

    See my page on some of the songs of Raimon , and my own English translations.

    Webpage of Lluís Llach ,
    and Maria del Mar Bonet .

    Another webpage about Valencian singer Ovidi Montllor ,

    I like reading especially about:

  • History (my preferred topics are the origins of the industrial, scientific and technological revolution from XVth to XVIIIth centuries; Napoleon; Catalonia from XVIII to XX century; the Spanish civil war, Franco, and transition to democracy; and the history of African Americans).
  • Origin of life and natural history.
  • Space exploration.
  • Environmentalism.

    Some interesting web pages for my interest on the environment:
    The Ozone Hole .

    Interesting pages for History of African-Americans:
    Black History .
    The Davis' page on African-American history .
    A brief biography of Benjamin Banneker (1731-1806) , the first African-American scientist.
