Koldo Mitxelena. Chicago University of Chicago

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. 


Koldo Mitxelena Chair at the University of Chicago

The goal of this chair, founded in 2012, is to extend Basque Studies in North America. It is part of the Division of Humanities at the University of Chicago and every year it hosts, for four months, a renowned Basque professor who imparts seminars and lectures about Basque humanistic studies.
