Leticia Eirín participates in the initiative "Atrévete a pescudar con elas"

The professor and researcher, a member of ILLA, recounts her scientific experience in the activities organised by UDC on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.


The University of A Coruña joined one more year the commemoration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, held on 11 February. The Scientific Outreach Unit of the university prepared two audiovisual pieces meant to be shown in primary and secondary schools and entitled "Atrévete a pescudar con elas!" ("Dare to research with them!"), in which the women scientists at UDC explain in a brief and simple manner their work as researchers. In one of those videos, professor Eirín describes her activity in the field of medieval Galician and Portuguese literature, encourages the students to make her questions and proposes a challenge in which she links medieval literature with contemporary music.

The full video can be watched here. To obtain more information about the rest of activities organised by UDC on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, follow this link.
