Module description

The term Basque usually brings to mind adjectives such as primeval, ancient, mysterious, isolated, unknown. Although the Basque Country has maintained its cultural and historical legacy it is nowadays an open, modern and dynamic society.

This course aims to study Basque society from a historical, anthropological, sociolinguistic, political and cultural perspective, through the analysis of different forms of artistic and cultural expressions (literature, music, painting, films, TV programs, architecture, folklore, etc).
