With the creation of the Dama d'Elx Chair, the Miguel Hernández University completes the circle of chairs dedicated to the city of Elche. Through this establishment, the university has integrated itself even further into the Elche society, taking yet another step in the task of interweaving the city’s social, cultural, and emotional fabric. The Dama d'Elx is currently the most representative cultural manifestation of the city, and this justifies the birth of the institutional Dama d'Elx Chair as the platform for linking, studying, scientific knowledge, and disseminating everything referring to the city’s archeological past, with special emphasis placed upon its archeological, historical, natural, architectural, and documentary heritage. Among the main priorities of the Dama d'Elx Chair are to actively collaborate with all public and private institutions, organizations, and associations that carry out similar activities. Likewise, sponsorship and patronage agreements will be fostered with both public and private institutions that wish to collaborate in the activities organized by this chair.
