Volume 37 of the Supplement Ibero-Americana Pragensia contains papers written by Czech and Argentinean scholars on Czech-Argentinean relations, representing the first relatively comprehensive attempt to map out these contacts since the colonial era to the present day. They pay attention especially to the activities of the Jesuits from the Czech province in the La Plata region, and, as concerns later periods, to Czech emigrants in Argentine. Other texts scrutinize Czechoslovak-Argentinean cultural relations and present the researchers’ views of Argentinean literature. The volume ends with an overview of archive collections which contain documents relevant to the study of this topic.
