Technology in defense of tradition: Basque nationalism in the information age

David Sanders, Salve Regina University

Abstract

This dissertation addresses the question, “How have Basque nationalists in Spain utilized technology and the media to advance their drive for self-determination?” In spite of violence and cultural disjointedness that has plagued the Basque nationalist movement since its founding in the late nineteenth century, the current Basque regional government has embraced technology to foster nationalism and transition the region from an industrial base to an information age hub. By analyzing the unique Basque condition, this dissertation explores how technology and media can help build a nation-state and enable cultural development.^
