I Have the M.A.!

Today was my final exam for my M.A., and I passed! I now have a Master’s in Latin American Studies from UC Berkeley. Starting in a couple weeks expect many more translations on a regular basis!

About Derrick Del Pilar

Born and raised in Chicago, I came to the tango while studying at the Universidad de Belgrano in Buenos Aires in 2006. In 2008 I earned my B.A. with majors in Creative Writing and Spanish & Portuguese from the University of Arizona, and in 2009 I earned an M.A. in Latin American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. My specialty is the history & literature of early 20th century Argentina.
