Europe and its Others (EUST2610)


Europe has been constructed over the centuries from many peoples, societies and cultures. How does Europe see itself now? What are the fracture lines of the new Europe, and how does it relate to its 'others'? In this unit we examine aspects of current European identity through three main foci: migration and the construction of material and symbolic border zones; civil society and the 'NGOisation' of Europe; and the role of culture in constructing or challenging European identity.
