Argentina - POLS 255 or SPAN 350 + ETLA 240: Language and Culture in the Southern Cone

Travel to Argentina with us this winter! Visit the land of tango, gauchos, passionate soccer fans, groundbreaking social movements, and world-renowned writers and artists. This South American country offers a rich cultural and political landscape to explore questions related to colonialism, independence, literature, political ideologies, arts, social justice, and democracy. And don’t forget, it is summer in Argentina in December!

This course is designed to familiarize you with the history, society, politics, and culture of Argentina. We will explore different cultural contexts in action through literature, film, and hands-on interaction with contemporary political issues. You have the option to enroll in either POLS 255:Politics of Latin America or SPAN 350: Identity and Exile in Southern Cone Literature & Film. Students from both classes will meet several times over the course of the fall semester in order to become familiar with the specifics of culture and language in Argentina. The trip will include a language component, as well as oral presentations, on-site interviews, and scavenger hunts meant to encourage self-directed study of topics of interest relevant to each particular locale.

Knowledge of Spanish is not required to take this class.
