Slovene Ethnic Press in Argentina until the Second Word War

The Slovenes began settling in Argentina as early as the second half of the 19th century. The main wave came in the 1920s and '30s and by the early 1930s, there were over 20.000 Slovene immigrants in Argentina. The author surveys the Slovene periodicals in Argentina which were of leftist, liberal and Catholic tendencies. Gospodarstvo began publication in 1926 as Argentina's first Slovene language newspaper. Slovenski tednik appeared in the late 1920s, followed by Slovenski dom and Novi list which began publication in the early 1930s. In 1937, Slovenski tednik and Novi list merged to form Slovenski list and in 1933 Duhovno življenje began publication.
