Political and Social Change in Argentina and Latin America:
This introductory course concentrates on the dynamics of social and political change and the building of citizenship in Argentina within a Latin American context. Although it is especially focused on Argentina's experience, constant reference is also made to other national cases, such as those of Mexico, Brazil and Chile. The course includes a brief description of Argentina´s political system, and topics such as the role of the military, political parties, unions and social movemets. In order to provide a complete picture of contemporary Argentine politics, we analyze in more detail the processes of breakdown of democracy and the military dictatorships in the '60s and '70's, the transition to democratic rule that took place in the '80s, the subsequent changes in political dynamics and political actors, and the current debates about democratic consolidation and the quality of citizenship and democratic institutions, with an emphasis on the problems of representation.
Argentinean and Latin American Economy:
Analyze and understand the process experienced by the Argentine economy from independence until the present days. Argentina , once one of the richest and fastest countries in the world is now entrenched in the rankings of less developed countries. Several interpretations have been given to this phenomenon , but the main focus of the course will be placed in explaining this evolution using the theory of economic growth and capital accumulation linked with the political and institutional changes that characterized the different periods of economic evolution.
Comparative History of Argentina and Latin America:
The course aims at studying the formation and evolution of the Argentinean and Latin American societies through a comparative approach since the Crisis of Independence up to the present; analyzing the confluence of the complex ethnic and cultural components of the regional societies; and comparing the different institutional evolution of the regional societies throughout the period.
In addition, the course aims at studying some of the most influential personalities in the social and political thought of the continent; analyzing typical Latin American institutions, like caudillismo; comparing the development of democracy in the different countries throughout the second half of the twentieth-century; and locating the contents of the course within the frame of world history.
The weekly classes will be complemented by occasional lectures by-and meetings with-outstanding scholars and influential local leaders.
"Argentina: the making of a country through its literature":
This course tries mostly to suit students' interests and/or needs. However, in order for them to fully understand their object of study, the course has been designed based on four mandatory and key texts that allow thinking and discussing the main issues of argentine culture and literature. They should be seen as readings that help foreign students to approach the central issues of XIXth and XXth century Argentina.
THE LATIN AMERICAN ROLE in a context of ECONOMIC GLOBALIZATION:
The course deals with the analysis of the international relations between the Latin American countries (L. A.) and other main geo-economic regions of the world; i.e.: Europe (European Union / E.U.), North America (NAFTA), and Asia (ASEAN). Main aspects to be taken into account are: economic cooperation, trade issues, business development and socio-political aspects.
