Abstract

The Center for Basque Studies records consist of a poster about the National Basque Sheepherder Monument project, a proposal for the creation of a Consortium for the study of Basque women, and miscellaneous flyers and newspaper clippings about the Basque Studies Program.

Administrative History

In 1967 a small Basque studies program was established within the social sciences division of the Great Basin Institute. Originally established to study the Basques as an integral part of the sheep industry that had so influenced the development of the Intermountain West, over time (and since incorporated officially into the University of Nevada, Reno), the Center for Basque Studies has become the leading research and educational institute of its kind outside the European Basque homeland. Originally housed in the Getchell Library building, it has been located in the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center since 2008.
