Europe and the Balkans - EUST2606

Year - 2018

Europe and the Balkans focuses on the development of the Balkans as a geo-political space in the broader context of Europe. The unit begins with a critical overview of the terms and definitions used for this part of South-Eastern Europe, and continues with detailed analysis of individual cultural, social and political identities, particularly in the 20th century. Literature and film are used as the primary means of understanding the main issues determining ethnic and national identities.
