Playing with the 'Agony of Rasu-Ñiti' in Buenos Aires

April 25, 2019

From March 18 to 24, 2019, Prof. Doris Sommer facilitated a Pre-Texts workshop at the Instituto de Vivienda de la Ciudad, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The workshop was for the Housing Authority of Buenos Aires who are resettling people - migrants from the interior as well as immigrants from Peru, Paraguay, etc. - from slum dwellings to good housing. Knowing that the moves need cultural innovation, Pre-Texts was invited to be an integral part of the program.

The text that the participants, including leaders from four target neighborhoods, from the National Library, a Foundation, and writers, played with was "The Agony of Rasu-Ñiti."
