Josep Termes i Ardèvol, member of AENI’s advisory board, passed away on September 9th at 75 years old. Termes was born in Barcelona in 1936. He studied pharmacy and liberal arts. He obtained his PhD in History from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Termes committed his academic life to the study of Catalanism. One of his academic contributions was to show how Catalan nationalism had working-class roots, which challenged the Marxist theory that considered Catalanism an invention of the bourgeoisie.
AENI wants to send its condolences to his family and friends, and wishes to share with the international academic community the news of his passing.
