In the summer of 1998, the University of Nevada, Reno hosted an international symposium entitled “Basques in the Contemporary World: Migration, Identity, and Globalization,” attended by nearly eighty scholars. Selected papers from the symposium are now available in three volumes published in the Occasional Papers Series of the Basque Studies Program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
This volume contains fourteen essays on such varied topics as the origin theories of the Basque language and its viability in the contemporary world, literature, gender studies, rock music and the bertsolari (troubadour), cinema, sports, Bilbao and the Guggenheim Museum, and Basque identity in cyberspace.
