CARLI, Sandra. The university experience and students' narratives: a study on our times.Translated byMarta Ines Merajver. Sociedad (B. Aires) [online]. 2007, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0327-7712.
This paper explores the characteristic modes of the university experience as perceived by students of Buenos Aires University in the early 21st Century. In our times, the university experience appears as a significant object of historical research in a scenario where academic traditions are undergoing a crisis, while we witness social reconfiguration and a new type of insertion both in Argentinean public universities as in those of other countries. From the narratives of students' lives, a reconstruction of daily life in a university context enables us to have an insight into the new dynamics of the cultural process taking place in the institutions and to identify factors and phenomena that point to elements of continuity and discontinuity with reference to other historical periods.
