HIST 345: Colloquium: History of Argentina

This class explores the history of Argentina during the past two centuries. We will analyze specific topics including: independence, immigration, Peronism, consumption, and political violence. In so doing, we will encounter several intriguing historical figures, including Juan and Evita Peron. In considering their stories alongside others, we will focus on the ways in which Argentines have sought to create a sense of national community deeply inflected with gender, class, race, and ethnic markers.
