Throughout my honors course, I have been conducting research and synthesizing a report of my findings regarding immigration to Argentina between the years 1890 and 1914. My research especially surrounds the effects of these immigration groups on Argentine culture and the economic prosperity during this period. Cause and effects of different racial and ethnic migrations to Argentina will also be discussed in order to understand the effects at a greater level. During the presentation, I will give a general review of my findings as well as enlighten the audience on current Argentine culture. I will also explain reasons I chose this topic as my Independent Study and how it will proliferate my success throughout my school career and my strides towards a degree in Spanish.
