Conference Hosts

 As the receiving city for millions of European immigrants during the XIX and XX century, Buenos Aires is a European city in Latin America or rather a Latin American capital with (a Southern) European flavor.  It is a disproportionate and multifaceted megalopolis concentrating the symbolic and material elements of political and economic power and huge social contrasts but also a culturally and intellectually lively city with free universities, independent theaters at the vanguard of the performing arts, cafes and night life.  It is a great place to come to that attracts a growing number of international visitors every year.  The conference will be held in the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires, located in the city centre.
