This course will explore artistic movements that have challenged the very notion of culture in Argentina. First, it will study the construction of national identity through the dilemma between civilization or barbarism as formulated in 19th century canonic texts (Hernández, Echeverría, Alberdi, and Sarmiento). The literary avant garde of the 1920s (Girondo, Storni, Borges, Arlt) will be examined in relation not only to the city of Buenos Aires, but also to psychoanalysis and tango. It will look at the Peronist movement and analyze the myths of Eva Perón and Che Guevara in national discourse. In the Argentine dictatorship we will look into two infamous wars: the "Dirty war," a term used to describe the forced disappearance of political opponents during the last military dictatorship and the "clean war" in the Southern Atlantic conflict (1982). Finally, through the figure of the scavenger, the course will focus on the 2001 crisis and analyze the implications for the notion of "the people". To conclude, the course will briefly consider feminist literature today.

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
