This course is designated as an "ISAC" course (Integrating Study Abroad into the Curriculum). Students who elect this component (associated with Spanish 373.001) will travel to Buenos Aires for two weeks, May 8 – 22, and engage in on-site study of the city and its history. We will visit sites that relate to the previous course readings, tour historic neighborhoods, visit museums, and attend a workshop on hand-made books. Two day-trips are also planned: we will venture into the Pampa and visit the town of San Antonio de Areco, which features a gaucho museum dedicated to the writer Ricardo Güiraldes; and we will tour the Delta Islands of the Paraná River and meet artisans who are trying to create a self-sustaining community. We will also take advantage of opportunities to hear tango and to attend plays. Time will be allotted for students to explore the city on their own and to conduct research for their final projects. The final project will consist of a blog that focuses on an area of interest. An LS&A grant will cover a substantial portion of the costs of lodging, guides, activities, local transportation, and international travel insurance. Students will pay a program fee, airfare, personal expenses, and most meals (five group dinners are included in the program fee). Approximately six weeks after the start of the winter term, students will need to enroll in the additional credits, and pay a deposit. Note that the two credits for the study-abroad option will pertain to the winter term and tuition (not spring). More specific information, including enrollment deadlines and the program fee, will be posted on CTools in early January.
