Public Life In Contemporary Argentina

A resource for Latin American studies, comparative politics, sociology, gender studies, media in political organizing, political and social groups, social anthropology and history, it presents an extensive grass roots view of Argentina and the recent social and political changes that have taken place from 1997 through 2003. Users are able to access the voices of citizens at the neighborhood-level. Search is by author, keyword, type of movement, geographic area, date, source and type of document. The sources of information go beyond standard press coverage and government declarations to emphasize the words of participants in social and political movements changing Argentina. Groups documented include civic associations of social protest, neighborhood work, confrontations with authorities and staged events; bartering networks created to enhance counter-trade of goods and services among the unemployed; political parties; and more.
