Political Conflict and the Transformation of the Frontier in 19th Century Argentina

Thesis picture cropped

In the fall of 2009 I completed my senior History thesis, a study of Argentina’s competing political forces and the effects of their conflict on the character of the Argentine frontier and its people. The paper utilizes contemporary political treatises, firsthand travel accounts, and various secondary sources both in English and Spanish to analyze the shifting demographics of the pampas and the inevitable “modernization” of the countryside.

The paper was awarded the Edward Pfeifer Award for Best History Thesis by the Saint Michael’s College History department. It is available in PDF format below.
