The Centro de Documentacion e
Investigacion de la Cultura de Izquierdas en la Argentina (CeDinCi)
is a radical archive located in Buenos Aires containing a broad
selection of material from the Argentine Left. It was founded in
1996 when an old militant died and left all the magazines,
newspapers, bulletins, books, correspondence, and documentation
that he had gathered since the 30s to Horacio Tarkus, the
present director of the archive.
CeDinCi was established as a space of reference for the
reconstruction of the Argentinean Left and as an archive for use
by radical researchers whose work focuses on new perspectives of
the Argentinean left after the military dictatorship.
organization relying completely on volunteer labor, the CeDinCi
has consolidated a large amount of information for public use,
free of charge, and they are currently working on a comprehensive
catalog. CeDinCi also publishes a political and cultural magazine,
El Rodaballo, twice a year. In addition, they have started a
publishing project, El Cielo par Asalto, which has already
produced thirty titles.
They also offer
seminars, lectures and workshops where radical intellectuals can
gather to discuss issues. Funding for any radical project is
always limited, and perhaps more so for Argentina, and CeDinCi
welcomes any fundraising advice.
