Argentina is a land of rich red wines, stunning natural landscapes and fiery Latin culture. It is a nation of strong social movements, powerful female political leaders, and activists who have worked to help global change take form.
The Annual International Studies Symposium has been a student run initiative for the past 21 years. During the 1995-1996 academic year, a group of highly motivated and driven students created a course that would allow them to deepen their knowledge on both foreign countries and Canada’s foreign policy. This year, the country of focus is Argentina.
The course is split into two main sections. During the first semester, students learn and do research about the selected country. The second semester is dedicated to organizing, planning, and executing the Symposium.

Explore Argentina's diverse landscapes, taste authentic regional cuisine, and delight in cultural performances before diving into its history, politics and international affairs during our academic panel discussions.
This year’s Symposium features various panels that will address a wide array of topics - politics, history, culture, economics, and more - presented by distinguished speakers and guests from all over. In previous years, foreign diplomats, Canadian federal ministers, and renowned academics have participated in the Symposium.
Not an International Studies student? No problem! The Symposium team is run by a team of International Studies students, but is open to everyone, including non-York students and Toronto community members! The aim of the Symposium is to foster intellectual dialogue among students, academic scholars, government officials, non-governmental organizations, and members of the Argentine-Canadian community all while celebrating this vibrant nation. Join us to shine a light on the land of "unión y liberdad." Visit www.argentinasymposium17.com for more information about tickets, and how you can become involved!
