Bernardo Atxaga. New York City University of New York

The chairs are aimed at fomenting and promoting knowledge and research into specific topics on the Basque language and culture through specialist professors and artists themselves. The Etxepare Basque Institute has to date created three international chairs, all of which undertake annual academic programmes on Basque Studies. 

Bernardo Atxaga Chair at the City University of New York (CUNY)

The main objective of this chair is to promote research into and the study of the Basque language and literature. Bernardo Atxaga himself inaugurated it in 2011, at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

The Bernardo Atxaga Chair offers a doctoral academic programme in Basque culture and annually brings visiting professors to New York.
