Course Description: This 2-week long study abroad program immerses participants in a rich and vibrant Latin American setting, combining experiences in a cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic culture (Buenos Aires, one of the cultural and artistic hubs in Latin America) with an indigenous community location (Tilcara/Purmamarca, in the Inca-influenced northern Argentina province of Jujuy). The trip provides a unique ground to learn about gender, ethnicities, colonialism and neo-colonialism, and regional cultural and artistic productions. Knowledge of Spanish language is NOT required. The special course fee covers lodging and excursions in Buenos Aires and Jujuy, domestic round-trip flight between Buenos Aires and Jujuy, city transfers, three group meals, breakfasts, a Tango experience, and museum and event fees. Since Argentina is located in the southern hemisphere, participants enjoy warm, long days with pleasant 70-80 degree temperatures.
Accommodations: Hotel in Buenos Aires; Colonial House in Jujuy
