SEMINAR ON HISTORICAL AND CONTEMPORARY ASPECTS OF ARGENTINA AND CHILE

 

Scope of the Program

 

The special four-week professional development program in Chile and Argentina is part of an on-going International Studies Program. The 15-member team participating in the seminar will consist of social science, humanities, education and business professors belonging to the universities and colleges in Georgia and K-12 teachers.

 

The primary purpose of the program is to provide overseas academic and field experiences to faculty members so that they can increase their knowledge, provide greater coverage to the two countries in the courses they teach, and also help students overcome stereotypical images. The ultimate goal is to promote mutual understanding between Argentina/Chile and the United States. The specific objectives are to:

 

  1. develop a greater understanding of the historical, political, social, educational and cultural aspects.
  2. observe the interaction between tradition and modernity and their consequences on social change.
  3. engage in a series of dialogues with native scholars and experts and use the same as a basis for preparing teaching and learning materials.
  4. gain insights into the contributions of the people in the area of customs, art, architecture and music.

 

The visiting team will participate in an academic program of lectures and field trips in Santiago and Buenos Aires. Native scholars affiliated with institutions of higher education and cultural exchange organizations will serve as resource persons for the above activities. During the course of the overseas program, participants will also spend a few days in and around Córdoba, Mendoza, Iguazú Falls, Valparaíso/Viña del Mar, Concepción and La Serena.

 

In Cordoba, Argentina, the seminar involves three presentations, to be held on July 16, at Windsor & Tower Hotel, by the following scholars:
