The Rise of Motown Records: How Berry Gordy Jr. Transformed Society
Danesha Garner - Collinsville, Illinois.
Language Assistant at IES Neil Armstrong
Motown Records is an American record label that was founded by Berry Gordy Jr. in
Detroit, Michigan on April 14, 1960. Its name is derived from motor and town, Detroit’s
nickname as it was the home of the automobile industry. Motown played an important
role in racial integration in the United States with its artists receiving crossover success
on radio stations across the country. Motown is known for launching the careers of
artists such as The Temptations, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Aretha
Franklin, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, Gladys Knight and many more. Motown
Records has been operating for 6 decades and counting. There is no denying the
impact it has had on American society. In 2018, Motown was inducted into the Rhythm
& Blues Hall of Fame.

Memories of the Holocaust in Modern Day Europe
Tom Taylor - Liverpool
The Holocaust is the pinnacle of human evilness, the culmination of our lowest point
as a species. Eleven million innocent people were systematically murdered, all less
than 80 years ago – an event in living memory.
This presentation will take you through my own personal journey through the nadir
of mankind. Having studied the Holocaust for many years, including both a degree and
a Master’s specialising in the subject, it is a journey that has involved many diverging
I will talk about just some of the key points, those that I think are both most
important and interesting. Firstly, a question I am constantly asked, why study the
Holocaust? What motivates me, or anyone else, to study something so fundamentally
Following from that I will look at different aspects of how the event is remembered.
The humanisation of those involved is immensely important and I will try to emphasize
the very human nature of the event. After that the focus will turn to how it is
remembered in different ways and by different societies. This will firstly involve looking
at different ways communities – Germany, France, etc. - and the different ways they
recall the same event. And after this we will look at some of the more important (or
famous) figures such as Anne Frank and Oskar Schindler – and the significance of
This will not be a history lesson, and indeed most of what is studied will refer to
modern day society rather than the past.

The Roaring Twenties through ‘The Great Gatsby’
Sara Lázaro Lucena - Madrid
One hundred years ago, the United States was a country full of economic prosperity,
jazz music, luxury, innovation, gangsters, creative writing, never-ending parties and
immigration. It was also a time in which many people started to reflect on how wealth,
power and individualism were slowly changing the social and human values of the
contemporary societies. In this Small Talk session we will explore the so-called
‘Roaring Twenties’ by examining one of the most representative and insightful novels
written during this fascinating historical period: ‘The Great Gatsby’ by Scott Fitzgerald.
February 10 Chilautrum 19:00-20:00
The Facts about Fast Fashion
Marlee Christian – Columbus, Ohio
Language Assistant at IES Neil Armstrong
Do you know where your clothes come from? We all love to shop, but recently more
information has been coming to light about the problems with how our clothes are
made and what it’s doing to the environment. This talk will be about the history, current
issues, and future of the fashion industry.

The Human Superorganism
Sari Arponen, MSc, MD, PhD– Ruokolahti, Finlandia
Every single human being has a complex, often forgotten, organ: the microbiota.
The microbiota consists of a community of microorganisms: bacteria, viruses, protozoa,
fungi, archaea, and even some tiny little animals. They are all over our body: skin,
mouth, gut, genitourinary tract. They benefit from their human host - and we need them
and their numerous functions. Humans are for the most part microbial: we contain more
microorganisms than human cells. While humans only have about 23000 mammalian
genes, we carry millions of microbial genes. The study of the microbiota is the last
frontier in Medicine and everyone needs to know how to take care of our microbial part.

Genes and Genealogies: Reflections on our Biological and Social Inheritance
Susanna Manrubia - Madrid
CSIC - Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas
Are you proud of your last name? Glad to have renowned ancestors? Have you
considered whether social traits echo biological inheritance? A scientific examination of
this last question reveals surprising answers. You can be almost certain that if a
neighbor claims to be a descendant of Charlemagne, you are too. But warn her: most
likely, there is no trace of his genes left in either of your genomes!

Alejandra Alba Morales- Chihuahua, Mexico
The beautiful cosmopolitan city of Dallas Fort Worth is more than cattle ranches and
western movies, it is a modern city with interesting history and contemporary skylines.

about some of the top attractions and places to visit in Dallas Fort Worth. From a
personal perspective, I’ll give you a brief insight of places to visit after having lived

The American Family
Natalie Kilic- Atlanta, Georgia
Language Assistant at IES Neil Armstrong
What is your idea of the typical American family experience? A mother and father,
two kids, a dog, and a white picket fence? The answer may be a bit different than you
think. American households have never been more diverse, shocking, or puzzling. In
this chat, we will dive into people’s ideas and preconceptions about the American
family and school system, as well as compare and contrast to different cultures.
Light conversation for social occasions; chitchat.
E.g., We engaged in some small talk.
Who can participate in our Small Talk Sessions? Members of Amigos de la EOI de Valdemoro, EOI
students and anybody from our school community who might be interested.
How can you participate in one, some or all of our Small Talk Sessions? By sending an email in advance
and letting us know that you will come to the session. Once you send us your email, we will let you know if
there is room for you for that talk. Please, if you sign up for one session, make sure you can come.
Students who come to ten sessions will receive a diploma.
All sessions will be free of charge.
All sessions will take place at the EOI Valdemoro. We will announce the classroom in advance.
