The Jean Haritschelhar Chair at Université Bordeaux Montaigne is one of the nine chairs maintained by Etxepare at universities around the world. Launched in 2016, this chair promotes the areas of Basque studies that were the subject of Haritschelhar´s research, especially literature and linguistics, as well as Iberian studies. In the spirit of Jean Haritschelhar, a particular focus is on international and cross-border relations.
