Mi name is Vanessa I study History at the National School of Antropology an History in Mexico City. I have a blog of my own www.diminui.blogpost.com about poetry and literary stuff and a project called blogueratura www.blogueratura.com which is an on line directory for literary blogs, and then I decided to ask for help to the british blog comunity.

I was wandering around Glob of Blogs looking for people living at London because I'm going to travel there next month to interview the famous historian Dr. Eric Hobsbawm. Hi is willing to give my school a live video-conference on October 3rd and I'm also in charge of making the necessary technical arrangements for the event here and there.

At the beginning of the project (Homage to Eric Hobsbawm: 25 years of Historiography in Mexico) some institution in London had assured us that they were able to help us in recieving the videoconference signal, but last week, the cancelled because they were all booked. Now I'm in panic, I barely know people in London and we don't know what to do.
We have contacted the Mexican Embassy, but they can't help us. Also we wrote some e-mails to the King's and Imperial Colleges, but the haven't wrote back. And Birkbeck College does not have de videoconference equipment. So my options are getting all wasted.

The thing is that I want to ask you if you know anybody at London, probably at a Social Institute or a College -or anywhere- that can help me get (or ask for) a videoconference room to transmit this event that implies a lot for my staff, my school and me: my social service, my thesis and so on!

So if you've got any idea or hint or anything at all that could help me, I will be glad.

I hope you don't mind if I decided to write you in this desperate way, but really I don't know what to do.

Thanks a lot.
