For all of you literary types out there with an interest in Basque culture, here you have a couple of opportunities to unleash your creative side. Enjoy and good luck!
Call for Papers: BOGA Basque Studies Consortium Journal
Boise State’s Basque Studies Program is introducing the BOGA Basque Studies Consortium Journal with a call for papers. This journal, which was formerly the Journal of Basque Studies in America by the Society for Basque Studies in America, was transferred to Boise State in 2011. In order to continue this tradition Boise State has taken it over as part of its Basque Studies Program. Even though Boise State’s name is at the forefront, they stress that this is a collaborative endeavor and thus the word “consortium” appearing in the title.
BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access academic publication dedicated to the scholarly study of all aspects of Basque culture with the aspiration to foster a better understanding of Basque culture and heritage in its diverse aspects by disseminating original works of interest to an English speaking audience and to encourage interaction among academics from various learning traditions to forge learning links. Basque Studies at Boise State University remains committed to building “Learning Links” via collaboration with other institutions and individuals in a viable network to mutually support efforts in Basque Studies.
Anyone may submit an original article online to be considered for publica tion in BOGA: Basque Studies Consortium Journal provided he or she 1) holds a graduate degree (e.g., M.A., Ph.D.) and 2) owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Submit online via BasqueStudies.org.
