Program Description:
THE PROGRAM
Georgia State University’s Summer Program in Human Rights in Argentina is an exciting 2 ½ week examination of Argentina’s transition from dictatorship to democracy after undergoing the most traumatic period in its history: The military dictatorship in which 30,000 people were abducted, tortured, and killed in secret detention places. The program is conducted in ENGLISH and no knowledge of Spanish is required to participate. Students will spend the first 10 days in the city of Cordoba (the second largest city in Argentina), which in the 1970s was one of the major sites where thousands disappeared and gross violations of human rights took place. During that time, students will attend morning lectures taught by professors from the National University of Cordoba from departments such as History, Political Science, and Psychology, as well as by human rights activists and other persons familiar with the topic. Afternoon visits and field trips relevant to the program will include a visit to the Cabildo (the old City Hall building), which housed the D2 Police Intelligence Unit and La Perla former concentration camp. Some afternoons, as well as one full weekend will be spent visiting tourist sites in the area, Such as the city of Alta Gracia with Che Guevara’s house and museum, and the colonial Jesuit Estancias. The last week of the program will be spent in Buenos Aires (the capital and largest city in Argentina), where students will visit offices of human rights organizations, such as the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, former secret detention centers the ESMA and El Atletico, and the Parque de la Memoria memorial wall and sculpture garden. This interdisciplinary program is suited for students in the literature/culture concentration of the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, and students pursuing a certificate degree in Latin American Studies through the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies. The program is also suited for students in departments such as Anthropology, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, or Women’s Studies who have an interest in international approaches within their disciplines
