Sketches from the University, published by the Publications Service of the ULPGC that has had the support of the edition of the Vice-Ministry of Culture and Cultural Heritage of the Government of the Canary Islands.

The authors and authors, who are part of the ULPGC faculty, have chosen a woman who has seemed to them a reference to recover in the different fields of knowledge. In particular we can highlight the princess governor Doña Juana de Austria, whose profile Manuel Lobo delves into; or a jump is made to the Enlightenment where the essential figure of Olympe de Gouges is addressed, defender of equal rights that the writer and professor Jonathan AP Allen clears.

Another chapter is dedicated to the unknown character of Ada Lovelace (1815): British mathematician, computer scientist and writer, made visible by Beatriz Correas; and to Victorina Bridoux and Mazzini (1835-1862), Canarian romantic poet rescued by Juana Rosa Suárez Robaina.
