The Faculty of Philosophy continued cooperation with the Embassy of Argentina in Serbia with a lecture by H.E. Mr.Osvaldo Marsico, entitled "Voices from Argentina – a lecture on Argentine history, foreign policy and cultural life". The lecture was held on May 19, 2022 in the Projection Hall of the Faculty of Philosophy.
This is Mr. Marsico’s second visit to the Faculty of Philosophy, during which he presented Argentina, its history, but also the modern element, both in cultural life and foreign policy. Judging by the numerous questions that followed the lecture, the most interesting part was the Argentine foreign policy and the similarities that can be drawn with Serbia in that regard, both in the past and the present.
Mr. Marsico expressed his great satisfaction to revisit Novi Sad and he was delighted to continue the conversation with the attendees in an informal conversation after the lecture.
The Embassy of Argentina, in addition to the embassies of Mexico and Spain, supported the establishment of a new department and the development of Hispanic and Ibero-American studies at the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad. The process of accreditation of the study programme of Spanish Language, Literature and Culture is underway, and the first students could start teaching as early as the upcoming academic year.
