Mitomanis Argentinas: A Lecture by Argentine Anthropologist Alejandro Grimson

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Alejandro Grimson, PhD in Anthropology, is the Dean of the School of Social Science at the Universidad Nacional de San Martin, Buenos Aires. He will present his latest book, Mitomanias Argentinas, where he argues that the many myths perpetuated within Argentina regarding identity and culture must be unlocked and disabled as a first step to building a better society within Argentina. Professor Grimson will discuss the issues of jingoism, national, local, and urban vs. rural identities, racism and demographics, political ideologies, and Argentina’s place in Latin America and the world.

This event will be in Spanish without English translation.
