READER'S CLUB.. Two Basque Stories.. About the Author:.. Bernardo Atxaga Bernardo Atxaga (pseudonym of Jose Irazu), is a Basque writer who began his career publishing in the Basque language, Euskera.. Atxaga graduated in Economics from the Bilbao University and later studied Philosophy at the University of Barcelona.. Atxaga is the most widely translated writer in the Basque language and has been awarded the most literary prizes.. National and international recognition arrived with his 1988 book,.. Obabakoak.. Atxaga recieved the National Literature Prize for.. and saw his book translated into more than twenty languages.. In.. Atxaga tells of the complex lives lived in the rustic Basque village of Obaba and explores the creative process of identity.. Meet Catalina de Erauso, the Lieutenant Nun!.. Catalina de Erauso, also known as La Monja  ...   such a disproportionately large role in the history of the Basques in the American West.. The Selected Essays of Julio Caro Baroja.. Julio Caro Baroja, as he saw himself, with a bust of his beloved uncle, Pío Baroja, in the background.. Julio Caro Baroja was one of the defining figures of Basque anthropology and ethnography.. In his view, Basque material culture and the spiritual and social world of Basque culture and society were intertwined.. He eschewed simple or simplistic notions of cultural identity, as can be seen in his discussion in chapter 13, The Feeling of Belonging in the Basque Diaspora, on the sense of kinships that Basques in the diaspora (in this case in the seventeenth century):.. The Bizkaians, Gipuzkoans, and Arabans set out for the Indies these great soldiers and sailors.. great merchants and everything else one can imagine, and they don t come back home because their lands are so very wretched.. Living on the Border in the Basque Country.. In Living Boundaries: Frontiers and Identity in the Basque Country, Dr.. Zoe Bray gives a fascinating anthropological account of three Basque towns:.. Hondarribia.. and.. Irun.. on the southern, Spanish side of the international frontier, and.. Hendaia.. to the north.. These quintessential border towns bring together the Pyrenees, the ocean, the Bidasoa River, the ancient sand, and a very interesting variety of cultures.. Twin lifestyles that approach and separate like reflections of concave and convex mirrors.. The Txingudi was the main area of Dr.. Bray s research, which involved living, working, and making observations in the town.. Bray s research follows in a rich tradition of social anthropological research, laced with ethnographic accounts tied to contemporary sociopolitical issues including: work and play, language issues, cross border organizations, and events like the.. Alarde.. and the.. Korrika.. Through her extensive ethnographic work, Bray unravels the complex web of multiple identities some traditional and some mutant that have developed in the French Spanish Basque context.. Ordinary People in Extraordinary Times.. The experience of ordinary people in the exceptional circumstances that predominated from the start of the Spanish Civil War to the liberation of Europe and end of World War II is the subject of War, Exile, Justice, and Everyday Life, 1936 1946, edited by Sandra Ott.. Here are just a few of the stories taken from the book:.. Nazario Sarasola from Lekeitio, Bizkaia, a priest who supported the Basque nationalists against Franco s uprising and who was, upon Franco s troops conquering Bizkaia, denounced to Falangist (fascist) authorities by three of his neighbors: a baker, a carpenter, and a businessman as being a fervent nationalist and an enemy of the New Spain.. Arrested in 1937, he was held in prison until 1940, when he was released but banished to internal exile in Almería.. His case demonstrates the particular ferocity that the Franco regime held for priests the supposed defenders of the traditional and conservative Spain who declared themselves for the republic and who defended Basque autonomy..

  • Title: University of Nevada, Reno - Center for Basque Studies - Books
    Descriptive info: Reader's Club.. War, Exile, Justice, and Everyday Life, 1936-1946.. Millions of Europeans experienced war, occupation, and exile in the turbulent years between the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 and the end of World War II in 1946.. The contributors to this volume focus on the lives of ordinary people ensnared in world events beyond their control.. More information on this book.. Buffalotarrak: An Anthology of the Basques of Buffalo, Wyoming.. Throughout the twentieth century many Basques arrived in the small town of Buffalo, Wyoming, making it a hub of Basque culture for the whole state.. This book, originally published for the NABO festival of 1995, collects essays by Basques and others with an interest in the town's people, lives, and customs.. Julio Caro Baroja remains one of the central figures of twentieth-century Basque ethnography and anthropology.. Here are included his essays on a number of topics relevant to the Basque Country from prehistory through to the 1950's.. Of particular interest are essays about the Basques and the sea, about the role of the house in the culture, and about industrial development in the Basque Country.. Living Boundaries: Frontiers and Identity in the Basque Country.. The international frontier between Spain and France has long been an important symbol (and reality) of the separation of the Basque people into different spheres.. Living Boundaries draws a vivid picture of the ways that individuals construct and express their identities along and across this international frontier.. The book follows in the tradition of social anthropological research and is laced with rich ethnographic accounts that tie to sociopolitical issues.. The Future Is Ours.. The voice heard in The Future Is Ours is that of the author of the Ibarretxe Plan and the PNV-EAJ's most recent lehendakari (president) of the Basque Autonomous Community.. It is rendered here by the journalist Koldo Ordozgoiti with sensitivity and accuracy.. The most important current historical events of the Basque Country - from the lehendakari's dramatic appearance before the Spanish Cortes (Congress of Deputies) to the terrible terrorist bombings in Madrid of May 11, 2004 - are seen through Ibarretxe's singular perspective.. Basque Cooperativism.. This book focuses on the changes and challenges faced by the social economy in general and Basque cooperatives in particular in light of the crisis of the welfare state, the growth of neoliberal doctrines and greater privatization, and most recently of all, the global financial crisis.. The book is divided into three parts: Part 1 analyzes the origins, values, and culture of Basque cooperativism.. Part 2 focuses on innovation in and  ...   original Morris Dictionary.. It features both American and British English.. Pictogram icons indicate many semantic fields and contains cultural and grammatical notes.. In addition, it provides guides for writing letters, numbers, measures, verb tables, and more.. And includes a brand-new Basque grammar section for this edition.. The Making of the Basque Question: Experiencing Self-Government, 1793-1877.. "The Making of the Basque Question" contextualizes Basque Political and parliamentary development in the period of Spanish nation-state building, during the transoceanic monarchy of the "Spains," in the nineteenth century.. This involved a particular transition and marked the emergence of the "foral question," becoming the "Basque question" as it was named in parliamentary terms and public debate from 1839 - a political, legal, and administrative issue of whether or not the Basque Country was entitled in law to self-government.. Expelled from the Motherland: The Government of President Jose Antonio Agirre in Exile, 1937-1960.. This story - that of the government-in-exile of Lehendakari Jose Antonio Agirre and the multitudes of other Basques who were forced by war and oppression to flee their homeland - has not been written in English before and is rather unknown to the Basque, Spanish, and French historiography..

Featured Book.. The Basque Nation On-Screen: Cinema, Nationalism, and Political Violence, by Santiago de Pablo William A.. Douglass Distinguished Scholar Series No.. 2.. The Center for Basque Studies is proud to announce the publication of Santiago de Pablo s book, The Basque Nation On-Screen: Cinema, Nationalism, and Political Violence.. Santiago de Pablo was a William A.. Douglass Distinguished scholar at the Center in 2009 2010.. The Basque Nation On-Screen looks at the role of film as historical witness, its influence on society, and its ability to help forge a collective memory.. The Basque Country is an interesting case study in terms of exploring the complex relationships among films, society, nationalism, and political violence, which de Pablo analyzes in this work.. This book examines the historical relationship between films and Basque nationalism from a twofold perspective: the use of cinematic productions by Basque nationalism as a means of inculcating national identity and ideology, and the depiction of Basque nationalism and especially the ETA terrorism in films.. Cinema provides new analytical perspectives of the history of Basque nationalism and has contributed to the strengthening of Basque national identity, to shaping its collective store of ideas, and to fostering a historical memory of an unmistakably nationalist stripe..

  • Title: University of Nevada, Reno - Center for Basque Studies
    Descriptive info: You have done wide research (which will be forthcoming from CBS Press) on the Basque diaspora community online.. Could you tell us a little about that research and about the Basque online community?.. Since 2005 I have studied all types of Basque diaspora organizations and their presence on the Internet and how these have evolved through time and have successfully adapted to new web applications such as social network sites.. Currently, 64% of the total number of Basque diaspora associations from 20 countries have a presence in cyberspace, which shows the significance of these technologies.. For instance, as of July 2012, 128 Basque diaspora associations have established formal groups on Facebook.. The use of new technologies is enabling Basques abroad to keep in close contact with the Basque Country while also helping to reinforce their collective identity, providing them with a sense of unity despite being geographically dispersed throughout the world.. Given that the Basque diaspora is about 1.. 5 times as large as the population in the home country, and with an institutional presence in 24 countries, the issue of communication and contact and the role of information and communication technologies in it is of vast importance.. Technology offers the Basque diaspora ways to resolve issues relating to networking as well as physical and  ...   Deusto.. Our research project aims at preserving the rich migrant past of the Basque people for generations to come by gathering information from the people who actually migrated and returned.. Consequently, we are using an oral history approach in order to give voice to those people who left the Basque Country and returned as well as those who are still abroad.. In this regard, we have been extremely fortunate to visit the Center for Basque Studies from where my colleague, Ainara Puerta, and I are completing fieldwork in the American West for the last month.. Pedro J.. Oiarzabal.. holds a PhD in Basque Studies-Political Science from the University of Nevada, Reno and is a researcher on Migration Studies at the Institute of Human Rights, University of Deusto (Bilbao, Spain).. His research examines diaspora creation and diaspora interaction with information and communication technologies as well as the meaning of identity in both homeland and diaspora realities, with particular emphasis on the Basque case.. Among his most recent publications are ".. Gardeners of Identity: Basques in the San Francisco Bay Area.. " (2009), "Diasporas in the New Media Age: Identity, Politics, and Community" (2010), and ".. Knowledge Communities.. " (2011).. He also writes the blog Basque Identity 2.. 0 for the Basque Radio and Television Group, EITB..
