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.

Basque Studies And The Basque Academic Diaspora, Iñaki Goirizelaia

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This paper presents a reflection about the work done by the University of the Basque Country on the Basque Diaspora. A proposal for the development of different strategies to improve the relationship between the University of the Basque Country and the Basque Diaspora is also presented.

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 ...

Between Trade, Religion And Ethnicity: The Catholic Church's Ethnic Institutions In The Spanish Empire, 16th-19th Centuries, Oscar Alvarez Gila PhD, Alberto Angulo Morales PhD 2014 University of the Basque Country

Between Trade, Religion And Ethnicity: The Catholic Church's Ethnic Institutions In The Spanish Empire, 16th-19th Centuries, Oscar Alvarez Gila Phd, Alberto Angulo Morales Phd

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

Throughout the Spanish Empire of the 16th-19th centuries, immigrants from the same regional, cultural or national origin tended to create associations of their own in most of the cities and ports in which these immigrant groups had formed colonies. One of the distinctive features of these institutions is that almost all of them were linked to the Catholic Church, usually in the form of religious confraternities or brotherhoods under the name or protection of a particular saint or devotion linked to their places of origin. Before the creation of the modern day meaning of nation and ethnicity, these immigrant communities ...


Bringing 'New Wind' To The Rural Interior Of The French Basque Country: The Association 'Haize Berri' And The Politics Of Culture, Zoe Bray PhD 2014 University of Nevada, Reno

Bringing 'New Wind' To The Rural Interior Of The French Basque Country: The Association 'Haize Berri' And The Politics Of Culture, Zoe Bray Phd

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This article looks at Haize Berri, a cultural association active in the rural French Basque Country from the 1980s to 2009, to reflect on the different understandings of art and culture and their political implications in the particular context of the Basque Country. Haize Berri, which in the Basque language means ‘New Wind’, a name chosen to evoke the coming of a new era, had the ambition of bringing cultural life to the rural inland of the French Basque Country. With the participation of public figures from the Basque art world, Haize Berri was at the heart of a cultural ...


Production Of Heritage: The Basque Block In Boise, Idaho, Gretchen Hill 2014 University of Oregon

Production Of Heritage: The Basque Block In Boise, Idaho, Gretchen Hill

BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal

This article examines the social and economic underpinnings of creating a place for descendants of Basque immigrants by the use of the Basque Block in downtown Boise, Idaho. In the past, unlike other immigrant groups in the United States, Basques lacked the desire to assimilate into the U.S. and remained relatively invisible. Simultaneously, they created subtle ethnic communities and maintained transnational sociospatial ties with Basque Provinces in Europe. Today, these transnational ties are stronger, which has profoundly influenced the creation of the Basque Block. The Basques strive to maintain their heritage landscapes to retain their cultural identity and educate ...

La Nación En Llamas: Representaciones Femeninas Del Nacionalismo Vasco Durante La Guerra Civil Española, Iker González-Allende 2014 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

La Nación En Llamas: Representaciones Femeninas Del Nacionalismo Vasco Durante La Guerra Civil Española, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

En los conflictos bélicos, a la mujer se la ha relacionado tradicionalmente con la retaguardia, erigiéndose como modelo de víctima inocente y del sufrimiento de la población civil debido al hambre, las penurias y los bombardeos, así como la soledad y la incertidumbre causadas por la ausencia del esposo y/o los hijos. Ahora bien, la separación entre el frente y la retaguardia y la caracterización de esta última como el único espacio de las mujeres resultan en realidad un mito, puesto que durante las guerras la población civil es víctima de numerosos ataques, y los pueblos y las ciudades ...


Inferential-Realizational Morphology And Affix Ordering: Evidence From The Agreement Patterns Of Basque Auxiliary Verbs, Parker Brody 2014 University of Kentucky

Inferential-Realizational Morphology And Affix Ordering: Evidence From The Agreement Patterns Of Basque Auxiliary Verbs, Parker Brody

Theses and Dissertations--Linguistics

“No aspect of Basque linguistics has received more attention over the years than the morphology of the verb.” (Trask 1981:1)

The current study examines the complex morphological agreement patterns found in the Basque auxiliary verb system as a case in point for discussion of theoretical approaches to inflectional morphology. The traditional syntax-driven treatment of these auxiliaries is contrasted with an inferential, morphology-driven analysis within the Paradigm Function Morphology framework. Additionally, a computational implementation of the current analysis using the DATR lexical knowledge representation language is discussed.
