Donostia-San Sebastián. The Etxepare Basque Institute continues to work on the divulgation of the Basque culture around the worlds, but its lectureships at various universities are considering postponing, canceling or carrying sessions out online when possible, as many universities are closing their doors due to the Coronavirus.  In the case of the Basque Studies Chairs, programs that were to begin in the coming days have to be rethought.

The Koldo Mitxelena Chair at the University of Chicago, that was to begin at the end of March, will be postponed until 2021; the Eloise Garmendia Bieter Chair at BSU in Boise, planned for the same dates, has been cancelled for the time being as decisions are made in regards to what to do; in Bordeaux the Jean Haritschelhar Chair, planned for April 6th has been postponed with the date TBD, and they have yet to decide what to do about the event in Baiona planned for May 7th.
