Sociology and the City: Buenos Aires


Sociology and the City: Buenos Aires

February 01, 2018
As a Sociology major studying in Buenos Aires, I have been observing and learning the cultural norms here, specifically in comparison to the norms in the United States. Understanding the people, the life, and the values in this city has greatly broadened my personal perspective in the field I am captivated by. As I have written previously in blogs, I am not a city girl, but I have enjoyed this immersion into Argentine culture for the insight it has brought me, both in my major and my personal life.

From the cafes to the nightlife, from the concrete jungle to the green spaces, I am increasing my awareness of the world around me everyday through experiencing it all along with the people, the porteños (people of Buenos Aires).
