Visions of Contemporary Europe - EUST1002

Year - 2018

Over the past two decades the face of Europe has changed dramatically. A new awareness of socio-political and cultural interrelationships and tensions has developed. In this unit we look at case-studies in contemporary European culture and society with reference to European visions of inclusiveness, social change and cultural diversity. Issues studied include the current crisis and its origins, post-communism, the re-emergence of the far right, immigration and multiculturalism, Islam in Europe, generational change, and the 'greening' of Europe. Materials include film, literature and other materials in an interdisciplinary framework.
