Examines the impact of mass immigration on conceptions of Argentine identity. Argues that the arrival of millions of European immigrants during the 1880-1930 period prompted a shift away from political, state-based understandings of Argentine identity to one that was more culturalist and ethnic. This new, less pluralistic vision of Argentineness survived long after the era of mass immigration ended, and became a central part of post-1930 nationalist discourses. This essay also considers how the immigrants themselves, as they sought to incorporate into their adopted homeland, participated in and at times resisted this shift in notions of Argentine identity.
