About ARN

argentina-research-network-logo3.jpgThe Argentina Research Network  (ARN) brings together academics, researchers and postgraduate students from a wide range of disciplines who share a research interest in Argentina. It provides a forum that aims to improve interaction, the dissemination of information, sharing of research and fostering of academic discussion among researchers of Argentina, primarily in the UK and Ireland. It collaborates with broader European and Latin American networks and institutions to stage joint workshops and events whilst maintaining a country-specific focus. ARN was formed in 2009 due to the growing level of academic interest in Argentina. Network members and supporters have put together and edited collection of papers entitled Argentina since the 2001 Crisis: Recovering the Past, Reclaiming the Future. Recently been published by Palgrave Macmillan, it is available to order here.

What kind of events do you organise?

Recent events that we have organised include the UK’s only academic conference specifically designed to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of the Argentina’s economic and social crisis which we held in December 2011. Entitled “Crisis, Response and Recovery: A decade on from the Argentinazo,” this interdisciplinary conference at the Institute for the Study of the Americas, University of London brought together students, scholars and professionals working on Argentina from a range of disciplines in order to debate and discuss short and long-term response to crisis and subsequent trajectories of recovery and featured Dr. Maristella Svampa as the guest speaker. Other events we have held have included staging panel workshops at the Society for Latin American Studies Annual Conference in Bristol in 2010 and London in 2014, and hosting the Argentine Nobel Laureate – Adolfo Pérez Esquivel at a public meeting with the Jubilee Debt Campaign in 2012. Several members of ARN have also collaborated on the publication of a book that analyses Argentina’s political, economic, social and cultural development since 2001.
