Course Description

This course reflects a current and growing interest in the autochthonous in an increasingly global environment. It aims to reflect the plurality of cultures and the conflict between peripheral politics and central government in the Spanish peninsula. It will analyse the various definitions of nationalism that have offered specific constructions of the Basque nation throughout history. Moreover, it will explore realities and myths surrounding the Nationalist ideology. In order to teach this multifaceted phenomenon, the approach will be an interdisciplinary one, building on historical, political and cultural discourses within the field.
