Radical Proposals in Basque Studies

The complex relationship of complicity and resistance that exists between academia and the various hegemonic discourses of power has been the subject of analysis by various humanistic disciplines. The Frankfurt School’s critique of the mandarin Scholar-Official, Louis Althusser’s essay on Ideological State Apparatuses, Pierre Bourdieu’s Homo Academicus or the Derridean concept of a university without condition are just a few examples of a whole metacritical apparatus, with which comparative literature has occupied a critical position regarding the domain in which its on discourse is created.  Taking the necessary geopolitical demarcation which corresponds to this area of study as a starting point, 452°F Journal has decided to dedicate the ninth monographic to the creation of a radical discourse – a discourse of resistance and opposition against the most reactionary of theories in the field of Basque Literary and Cultural Studies.
