Welcome to the Center for Basque Studies Book Store.

We are primarily a research center. Our mission is to conduct and publish Basque-related research. Anthropology, history, women’s studies, cultural studies, literature, bibliography, and lexicography have thus far been our main fields of research. Topics on which we have written include: migration, nationalism, women and literature, ethnographies of Basque society, political violence, and the international discourse of terrorism. We have also produced a Basque/English, English/Basque dictionary.

Instruction is also part of our mission. We offer a minor in Basque studies and a tutorial Ph.D., and are in the process of developing a group of online courses. The first several courses — Basque Culture; Elementary Basque I and II; Museums, Architecture, City Renewal; Modern Basque History; The Basque Economy; Basque Language, Society, and Culture — are already available. If you are interested in a study-abroad program, one of our staff members directs the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) which sends students to many countries around the globe, including the Basque region.

The mission of the Center for Basque Studies is to further Basque-related study by conducting, facilitating, and disseminating original Basque-related research in the humanities and social sciences, in cooperation with appropriate academic departments at UNR, as well as at other American and foreign universities, by the creation of undergraduate and graduate curricula at the University of Nevada, Reno (including the creation of distance education courses) and by collaboration with the University Studies Abroad Consortium to provide a quality educational experience for students desirous of studying and living in the Basque Country of Europe.
