The course aims to bring participants closer to the different fields of Basque Ethnology today. The ethnological programs of study have been one of the pillars of the research and the teaching of the Chair of language and Basque Culture since its creation in 1963 under the direction of Mr. José Miguel de Barandiarán. In tune with this long tradition, the Chair proposes a participative program with three main objectives: to get to know some of the most representative ethnohistorical institutions and projects of the Basque Country and Navarre, to promote the meeting with renowned specialists of the discipline who carry out their work there, and to disseminate some of the latest contributions on folklore in our land.
