Latin American & Caribbean Society

LAT 475 - 3 credits, 3 hours


(There is no Argentina program for 2017)

This is a study-abroad course taught abroad in Latin American or Caribbean country. It offers students the opportunity to travel and study in Latin country. Students will tour historical sites and museums to experience both the dominant political narrative and more inclusive versions of Argentine history.

Students will visit an informal settlement cooperative as well as the more newly gentrified neighborhoods. They will volunteer with low-income children in local elementary schools. Students will also have an opportunity to learn the history of tango firsthand. They will attend a large folklore outdoors fair to interact with residents who have origins in the interior of Argentina and celebrate their mixed heritage. These and other activities are all complemented by lectures from local experts which correspond to the course materials.
