Hot off the Presses: Begoña Echeverria
The Center for Ideas & Society presents a book talk with Begoña Echeverria (Associate Dean of Academic Personnel & Professor, Graduate School of Education) in conversation with Margaret Nash (Professor Emeritus, Graduate School of Education)

“Witches” and Wily Women: Saving Noka through Basque folkore and song”

About the book

“Intellectual breadth and depth as well as soul shines through this book. Echeverria critically researches the ideologies surrounding the loss of the pronoun noka, examining its use in a range of genres -- biblical texts, folktales and folksong. In her analysis of folktales she takes us inside the world of Basque culture so that we hear the voices of women as wives, sisters, friends, daughters, and tricksters. Her journey into understanding gender and culture in Basque society comes fully alive in the analysis of folk songs, treating us to some of her own original compositions. The book is unique in bridging sociolinguistics, language ideology, gender studies, and the lived personal history and experience of being Basque.”
