    This is a virtual postgraduate course offered in Buenos Aires. The curriculum is in English. The site includes information on course description, staff, and admission requirements.

    You don't have to be in Buenos Aires to take the course.

    excellent curriculum, and also some political and historic aspects can be found. Perhaps some aspects of the black part of the history are missing.

    But the course description is here:

    http://www.flacso.org.ar/formacion_posgrados_contenidos.php?ID=307&I=3


    Starting date: March 26, 2012
    Class period: FROM March TO July


    This is a virtual learning posgradute course. A personal password will
    be provided to students before the beginning of the classes and it will
    be required in order to enter its virtual campus.

    The course will cover the following main areas, divided roughly
    into two different modules

    • The political genealogy of tango: it implies expository texts mainly. They are available online every two weeks. Each professor writes his/her own lectures either individually or in collaboration with others. Every lecture develops the curriculum proposed by this course.

    • The history of tango: Every lesson has been designed in order to allow students to approach the musical history of tango not only through the most representative compositions of each period but also through its visual history, for which a wide variety of Argentinian films of all times have been selected. These digital materials will be available every two weeks according to the development of the curriculum.
    Each class includes a bonus track accompanying the lessons
    which contains visual and/or sonorous rarities related
    to the history of tango.

    Evaluation procedures: All students must present a final written work
    (paper or essay).



    Although elsewhere it talks about the interdependent component parts
    of tango - music, dance, poetry - music rather than dance seems to be
    at its core. Not surprising that a sedentary occupation like listening
    to music takes precedence over such an active activity as dancing.
    Many more people are interested in the music itself than dance it.

    This no lightweight course, the admission qualifications would rule out
    many social dancers who do not need such academic knowledge anyway.

    The cost isn't minor either - US$480.


    More about the organisation behind it here:

    http://www.flacso.org.ar/english/

    Extract:
    The Latin American School of Social Sciences (FLACSO) was founded
    in 1957 by the initiative of UNESCO. FLACSO was created as
    an international, inter-governmental, regional and autonomous body
    comprised of Latin American and Caribbean countries . . . . . .

    The core objective of the FLACSO is establishing post-graduate programs
    for the purpose of training new Latin American generations
    in different fields, within the Social Sciences. . . . . . . . .

    Probably a Master in some form of Social Science.

    Gives you the right to write sarcastic one-liners on social messaging sites.

    one hopes that diplomatic relations with Argentina dont deteriorate...

    The Argentine govt seems to be using tactical distraction from its countries problems by blockading UK vessels that have been to the Malvenas/Falklands

    and even the US Govt is getting twitchy about Argentina's economy...

    I smiled when I saw "Hansen lode" in the translation. Bad Google, I thought, bad, bad. Then I checked the original. It says "lode Hansen". Bad Janis, bad bad.

    By the way, why translating? I suppose the lectures will not be given in english.
