Executive Director

I have had the great pleasure of leading the Office since 2012. I am originally from the United States where I also worked in international education. I believe that the experience of studying abroad is key for any student seeking to better understand the world and mature as a person. I had the opportunity to study and work in Costa Rica, Russia, Japan and Kazakhstan. I have lived in Argentina for more than 10 years with my bicultural children and husband. I am excited to help you embark on an exchange program - an adventure of pure learning!

Luz Horne

Academic Director

See biography

I am the Academic Director of the Office of International Programs in San Andrés and work particularly on the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). I am also a Literature Professor in the Department of Humanities. I did my PhD in Latin American literature at Yale University and my Bachelor of Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. I was a professor at Northwestern University and Cornell University. In my classes and research I work in the area of Latin American literature and visual culture. My book Real Literature, Transformations of realism in contemporary Latin American literature, examines the relationship between word and image within literature and how this relationship impacts the representation of reality. I enjoy working with international students in San Andrés because it enriches and diversifies the university space and teaching.

I am currently coordinating the Outgoing Exchange Students at the International Programs Office. I studied Business Administration and during my third year of studies I had the possibility of going abroad on an exchange at the University of Toronto. Being able to live and study in a different country with a different culture was an amazing experience both for my professional career and personal growth. I strongly believe that doing an exchange can be really positive. I am here to help you experience this opportunty!

As a university student, I studied Political Science with a specialization in International Relations and Journalism. I have worked on publications regarding culture, technology and politics. I have also coordinated regional educational programs in South America and participated in the visual arts scene in Buenos Aires. Since 2016 I have worked at the Office of International Programs with a long pause between 2018 and 2019. Although I am disturbed by Flaubert's letters to Louise Colet and fear that our history can be summarized by Kobayashi's film The Human Condition, I find comfort by eating Cadore's dulce de leche ice cream and Güerrin muzzarella pizza, both essential to any exchange program in Buenos Aires.

I received my Bachelor of Arts and teaching degree in Linguistics and Literature at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. I teach Spanish language courses as well as advise UdeSA students who want to participate in the exchange. I have significant specialized professional training and have taught a large number of workshops and webinars on reading, writing, correction and more. I look forward to accompanying you with your learning of the Spanish language.
