A Basque in Boise

Eloise Garmendia Bieter Chair 2018: Memory and Emotion – Women’s Stories (March 15-18)

The Boise State University Department of World Languages together with the “Eloise Garmendia Bieter Basque Studies Chair” would like to invite you to the International Conference on Cultural Studies titled:

Memory and Emotion – Women’s Stories: Constructing Meaning from Memory

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC (March 15-18)

The inaugural World Languages International Conference seeks to address the issues of Emotion, Memory, and Gender from the perspective of Cultural Studies. It is also the objective of the conference to bring together both scholars and community partners, particularly individuals and groups who have relied on memory to survive emigration or forced displacement and have now found a home in Boise. Scholars from the Basque Country and US will present their research on the theme of the conference.
