EUST2601 - Europe: Civilisation and Barbarism

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Peter Morgan


What is European civilisation? Is it just the product of history? Or are other factors involved in its development? One way of coming to an understanding of Europe is to consider its literary and intellectual encounters with other nations, cultures and civilisations as well as with itself. The aim of this unit is to consider the ways in which Europeans have confronted and questioned their civilization since the Renaissance, through the study of literary and theoretical texts.
