JEWISH BUENOS AIRES

An NEH Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers

Buenos Aires, Argentina

July 7 - July 25, 2014

Under the direction of David William Foster

Arizona State University

The seminar will focus on five major works of Argentine Jewish writers, basically from the twentieth century. Through a detailed examination of these works as literary texts that interpret the Jewish immigrant experience in Buenos Aires, the seminar will provide 16 participants with an important grounding in Argentine urban immigrant culture. Participants will be college and university professors of Latin American studies, some of whom may have some familiarity with Argentina. There will also be places for two advanced doctoral students. The participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Argentine literature, while other participants will receive a solid introduction to Argentine Jewish culture through major literary texts. The language of the seminar will be Spanish, and participants must have an advanced command of the language for purposes of reading the texts, discussing them, and preparing written essays. An important aspect of the seminar will be several lunches a week with prominent Jewish artists, intellectuals, and writers ("Almorzando con Buenos Aires Judío”).
