Euskaldunak Or Amerikanuak: An Introduction To The Folklore Of The Boise Basques And Its Contribution To The Basque-American Identity, Leah Zavaleta

Senior Independent Study Theses

There is little to no research on the folklore of the Basques, and what little that has been done is outdated. The Basques are a people that have long intrigued anthropologists, linguists, geneticists, and folklorists. Previous research has attempted to find an origin of the Basque language, and has acknowledged the genetic uniqueness of the Basques and attempted to discover why. The folklore of the Basques was collected almost a century ago and there are no contemporary collections of current Basque folklore. I have attempted to solve this problem by contributing to the literature on the folklore of the Basques ...


Estados Unidos Como Patria De Redención: El Exilio Del Nacionalismo Vasco En Yanqui Hirsutus, De Manuel De La Sota, Iker González-Allende 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Estados Unidos Como Patria De Redención: El Exilio Del Nacionalismo Vasco En Yanqui Hirsutus, De Manuel De La Sota, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Yanqui hirsutus, de Manuel de la Sota, resulta una obra interesante para aproximarse a la posición del nacionalismo vasco durante el exilio causado por la Guerra Civil. Según la fecha que se incluye al final del libro, Sota terminó de escribirlo el 19 de mayo de 1946 en Nueva York, aunque no se publicó hasta 1949 en Buenos Aires. El epígrafe al comienzo de la obra, en el que el autor agradece a la Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York por haber puesto a su "disposición sus cinco millones de volúmenes" (7), también da a entender que Sota escribió el ...


Introducción: José Ángel Ascunce Arrieta Y La Pluralidad Del Exilio Vasco, Iker González-Allende 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Introducción: José Ángel Ascunce Arrieta Y La Pluralidad Del Exilio Vasco, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Cuando se habla del exilio vasco, resulta indispensable mencionar el nombre de José Ángel Ascunce Arrieta. Además de sus estudios sobre Cervantes y el Siglo de Oro, el otro principal campo de su larga y prolífica trayectoria como investigador han sido las culturas española y vasca del siglo xx, especialmente las que se desarrollan a partir de la Guerra Civil Española (1936-1939), tanto en territorio español como en el exilio. Sus estudios se han enfocado mayormente en autores vascos que escriben en castellano. Sus más de treinta libros entre monografías, obras completas, antologías, ediciones de obras y volúmenes coordinados, junto ...

Lekuak: The Basque Places Of Boise, Idaho, Meggan Laxalt Mackey 2015 Boise State University

Lekuak: The Basque Places Of Boise, Idaho, Meggan Laxalt Mackey

History Graduate Projects and Theses

Lekuak ("Places") traces how Basque places in Boise reflect the evolution of each generation’s expression of ethnic identity in response to American societal forces of the times. The first-generation Amerikanuak (late 1800s to 1920s) predominantly expressed their ethnicity as an internally-focused, solely-Basque ethnic group and built places such as boardinghouses and frontons that met communal needs. The Tartekoak, ("in-between" second generation, 1930s to the 1950s), mostly expressed a dual Basque and American ethnic identity. Tartekoak places often revealed the individuation of this generation with single-family residences and Americanized businesses, and the Basque Center with ancestry-based membership. The Egungoak ("today ...


Looking Back: Publication Of A Seminal Book In Basque Studies Amerikanuak: Basques In The New World, 2015 Boise State University

Looking Back: Publication Of A Seminal Book In Basque Studies Amerikanuak: Basques In The New World

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

Amerikanuak was first published in 1975 and it marked a pioneering study of one of the American West's most important ethnic minorities, providing an engaging, comprehensive survey of Basque migration and settlement in the Americas. Its value endures as an essential introduction to the history of the Basque people and their five centuries of involvement in the New World. The surviving author, and dean of Basque Studies, William A. Douglass (Professor emeritus of the University of Nevada, Reno) agreed to an interview as we look back on the continuing influence of this seminal book in Basque Studies.


Looking Back: The Boise – Oñati Study Abroad Program, 1974-75, 2015 Boise State University

Looking Back: The Boise – Oñati Study Abroad Program, 1974-75

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This document is a look back at the 1974-75 inaugural study abroad program from Boise State University to the town of Oñati in the Basque Country. Featured here are excerpts and photos from Boise State Basque Studies program website (the successor of sorts from that first program), and an article written by one of the first participants. As that author notes, the program changed their lives and it had far reaching ramifications in transforming the Idaho Basque Diaspora by strengthening the bond between them and the Basque homeland.


Looking Back: Photographic Essay Of The “Joan-Etorri” Basque Studies Symposium, 2015 Boise State University

Looking Back: Photographic Essay Of The “Joan-Etorri” Basque Studies Symposium

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This document is a photographic essay that featured well over two dozen presenters at the “Joan-Etorri” (Going and Coming) Basque Studies Symposium that was hosted by Basque Studies at Boise State University. The year 2015 marks two 40th anniversary events: the inaugural Boise State Basque Studies Abroad program in Oñati of the Basque Country, and the publication of the seminal book Amerikanuak in 1975. Together, these events provided a broad spectrum of possible topics for varied sessions of an academic conference, including identity, immigration, international contacts, etc. It also illustrated the back and forth (between the homeland and Diaspora) of ...


The International Location Of Basque Studies, Mari Jose Olaziregi 2015 University of the Basque Country / Etxepare Basque Institute

The International Location Of Basque Studies, Mari Jose Olaziregi

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

The aim of this brief paper will be to comment on the goals and anxieties that have conditioned the globalization of Basque culture in recent times. Questions regarding the desire of the Basque institutions to globalize our culture and the implementation of Basque Studies lectureships and chairs in international universities will be addressed. I will conclude my reflection by alluding to the novelty and debate surrounding the field of Basque Studies, as well as some of the challenges that this discipline faces.

The Sun Also Sets, William A. Douglass 2015 Center for Basque Studies, University of Nevada, Reno

The Sun Also Sets, William A. Douglass

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

Ernest Hemingway launched his career as novelist with The Sun Also Rises, set in large measure in the Basque Country. It was the beginning of a life-long involvement with things Basque. The present article examines the nature of this fascination and its shortcomings. Ernest became a regular attendee of Pamplona's San Fermín festival (and a key architect of its international fame). During his two-decade residence in Cuba, he surrounded himself with Basque jai alai players and political refugees from the Spanish Civil War. Yet Hemingway remained insensitive, if not downright indifferent, to their fervent Basque nationalism. When he subsequently ...


The Basque Big Boy? Basque Masculinities In Vaya Semanita, Iker González-Allende 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Basque Big Boy? Basque Masculinities In Vaya Semanita, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

This article argues that the television show Vaya semanita portrays a specific Basque masculinity, different from the Spanish or Mediterranean ones. The traditional Basque masculinity shares some values with the most accepted forms of Spanish masculinities –including manhood as a challenge to be overcome, physical strength, intemperate drinking, and gluttonous eating – but differs from them in the way men behave in relation to women and sex, and the way they maintain close friendships with each other. Basque men appear as dependent on their mothers and wives, making them look emasculated and infantile. Their male bonding is also interpreted as homoeroticism ...


El Fantasma Del Deseo: Delirios Nacionalistas En Huesos, De Ramiro Pinilla, Iker González-Allende 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

El Fantasma Del Deseo: Delirios Nacionalistas En Huesos, De Ramiro Pinilla, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Ramiro Pinilla desarrolla en Huesos (1997) el descubrimiento por parte del joven protagonista, Asier, de que un gudari llamado Ismael Jáuregui se halla escondido desde la Guerra Civil en su caserío, habiendo propagado sus familiares la noticia de su muerte. Ismael vive encerrado en esa casa durante veinte años, hasta su fallecimiento en 1957, cuando su madre Josefa y su hermana Nerea le entierran junto a la que fue su novia, haciendo creer al pueblo que, gracias a un mensaje de la Virgen, han descubierto sus huesos en un monte y los están dando sepultura. Partiendo del argumento de la ...


Basque Archive Feature: Joe Eiguren, English-Basque / Basque-English Dictionary, 2014 Boise State University

Basque Archive Feature: Joe Eiguren, English-Basque / Basque-English Dictionary

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

Joe was born in Nampa, Idaho in 1915 to Domingo and Maria Eiguren, but when barely a year old, his family moved back to the Basque Country where he stayed until 1934, when he decided to emigrate back to the United States. After a brief stay in Boise, he went to Jordan Valley to work for a sheep company. A powerful thirst for knowledge made the isolation of working with the sheep difficult for Joe. Later he served in the US Army during World War II, and when he returned he worked for the Department of Employment helping migrant workers ...


The Emotional Making Of The Basque Working Class, Sara Hidalgo 2014 Universidad de Santiago de Compostela

The Emotional Making Of The Basque Working Class, Sara Hidalgo

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

The aim of this paper is to present a reflection on the class consciousness making process, according to the so-called “affective turn” perspective. The immediate área of study is the Basque Country, more specifically the Nervion River área of Bilbao, at the end of 19th century, when Socialist movements arose, developed, and became the working class movement main party. The explanatory purpose is to illustrate why Basque workers accepted socialist proposals, thus becoming class-conscious, and thus joining a working class movement. The main hypothesis is that class consciousness is an emotional construction.


The Case For A Modern Euskara: Proposed Structural Changes To Euskara Batua, Ambrose Goikoetxea 2014 Euskal Herria 21st Century Foundation

The Case For A Modern Euskara: Proposed Structural Changes To Euskara Batua, Ambrose Goikoetxea

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This paper comes into being because of this author’s concern about the limited use and slow evolution of Euskara Batua, the version of the Basque language spoken today in parts of the Basque Country and the larger B, also called Euskal Herria, with its historical regions in Europe, bounded by Spain in the south and by France in the north, as well as in dozens of Basque communities in the USA, Central, and South America. What’s the problem? Well, currently the number of auxiliary verbs (verbal forms, aditz languntzaileak) in Euskara Batua as proposed by the Euskaltzaindia, the ...


(En)Gendering Basque Culture: Musical Notes From The Archives, Begoña Echeverria 2014 University of California, Riverside

(En)Gendering Basque Culture: Musical Notes From The Archives, Begoña Echeverria

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

Drawing on folksongs written since the 16th century, I show women and girls in Basque song exhibit more agency and a wider variety of emotional stances than the secondary, “traditional” roles usually ascribed them. They negotiate potential mates; drink instead of work; and seek the pleasure of men other than their husbands. While the meanings of these songs are multi-vocal and sometimes difficult to discern, I argue that deliberation over these songs’ meanings enriches our understanding of Basque culture and the role of song in producing and contesting it.

An Analysis Of The Basque Independence Movement And The Political Position Of The Basque Country Within The Spanish State, Ariel Bothen 2014 University of Maine - Main

An Analysis Of The Basque Independence Movement And The Political Position Of The Basque Country Within The Spanish State, Ariel Bothen

Honors College

The Basque desire for independence or self-governance has been a part of Basque political culture since the medieval era. The Basques have a history of democracy and preserved their self-governance in the face of invasion and domination for many centuries. The purpose of this thesis is to track the movement to the current day and address what has become known as “The Basque Question”, which refers to what exactly Spain should do with its Basque population and the Autonomous region. I address the two major aspects of the movement, which include the Basque terrorist group known as Euskadi Ta Askatasuna ...
