Translated Title: Mixed marriage and conversion. Elements of construction of Jewish identity in German-speaking Switzerland
Translated Title: Entre basques et juifs, comment l’identité espagnole s’est racialisée
Abstract: Racialized statements are central to the formation and dissemination of Basque nationalism. Jean-Frédéric Schaub, a specialist on modern Spain, unravels the genealogy leading to the invention and invocation of a supposedly pure Basque identity. This conception was built up over a long period of time, at the cost was an anti-Semitism – with roots stretching back to the sixteenth century – that was reinvigorated in the nineteenth century. The Basque case is one instance of the broader question of the place of racial issues in Spanish nationalism.
