Eva Perón - At first, I wanted to write about the role of women in post-colonial Argentina. This topic, as could be expected, is far too broad to even begin addressing in fifteen or so pages. But it is an incredibly important and fascinating topic, and so I instead decided to focus on two women in particular who have shaped Argentina’s history: Eva and Christina Fernández de Kirchner. This is, in a sense, a way of comparing the role of women then and now in two different societies. Knowing the circumstances of Eva Perón’s birth and youth, it seems inconceivable that she would become the unstoppable political firebrand whose memory evokes wails even today....   [tags: Government]

Carlos Chavez Obertura Republicana - Carlos Chavez Obertura Republicana Carlos Chavez’s Obertura Republicana is a politically motivated piece for orchestra. The piece is specifically based off of Mexico’s Indian heritage. The piece involves an arrangement of a traditional military march titled Zacatecas, the famous salon waltz, Club Verde and the revolutionary piece, La Adelita.
