A Woman’s Place: Language and Literature Alive in Argentina

Summer 2022

We are delighted to have you consider our 2021-2022 Fulbright-Hays GPA Short Program as a possible learning experience. The Fulbright-Hays supports overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in Modern Languages and Area Studies. Our program was created for K-12 teachers/administrators with intermediate level proficiency in Spanish.

A Woman’s Place: Language and Culture Alive in Argentina is a four-week residence program in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during June-July 2021, focusing on culture, economics, politics and history as a means to understand the role and realities of women in Argentina as keepers of family history and pioneers within society. Most women are responsible for the advancement, retention and achievements of the members of a family. Studying women and their role in society could bring to the K-12 teachers a better understanding of the dynamics of family structure and power within the Latino community.

We invite you to explore this website and to feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are firm believers of teaching “living history” or letting history speak through examples and experiences. For this particular journey we will have the benefit of historians, literature and society experts together with visits to local museums, libraries and repositories to further see and admire artifacts, art and architecture of the times.

We envision this as a comprehensive historical embrace!
