About

Since September 2012, I am in charge of the position created at the University of Birmingham and funded by the Etxepare Basque Institute to promote Basque language and culture.

Qualifications

  • PhD in Basque Studies (2012, University of the Basque Country)
  • MA in Critical and Cultural Theory (2004, Cardiff University)
  • BA in Basque (2000, University of the Basque Country)

Teaching

I teach Basque language at three different levels (beginners, elementary and intermediate) and a module on Basque society and culture.

Research

I am interested in the fields of memory and postmodernism and their presence in Basque contemporary literature and culture.
