I am taking an unexpected opportunity to join a study abroad program on urban culture in Buenos Aires, from Jan 1-Jan 11. I'm wondering if there are any SUNTA/CORI members or allies are currently in Buenos Aires, and who would be willing to meet up with me for an evening's discussion or two.
When I taught on the Semester at Sea voyage around-the-world study abroad last year, I arranged to meet a SUNTA colleague based in Tokyo, and found it a hugely valuable and enriching experience for my understanding of the city, as well as an enormously enjoyable exchange of ideas (thanks David!). I wish I had had the forethought of making a similar contact in each of the ten countries we visited.
Hence my effort to make a contact for Argentina--please send me an email if you're in Buenos Aires and willing to share your knowledge of the city! koptiuch at asu.edu
