Exploring nationalisms at the British Library
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
The London British Library joined the program of the Manuel Irujo Fellowship at the University of Liverpool, launched by the Etxepare Basque Institute, with the celebration of the seminar Peninsular Nationalisms Contrasted. The seminar explored the origins of the conflict between Spain, the Basque Country (Euskal Herria), Catalunya and Galicia, its evolution in the 20th century as well as its manifestation in the present, and attracted a big audience.
Three speakers, Montserrat Guibernau (Queen Mary University of London), Xabier Irujo (University of Nevada, Reno) and Helena Miguélez-Carballeira (Bangor University) addressed the issue of nationalisms in Catalunya, the Basque Country and Galicia respectively. The seminar will concluded with a round-table discussion chaired by Professor Kirsty Hooper (University of Warwick). The event was also attended by Mari Jose Olaziregi, Director for the Promotion and Dissemination of the Basque Languate at the Etxepare Basque Institute.
