EURO 30001 - Section 01: What is Europe? (CRN 31841)


Course Description:
What is Europe? Is it merely a geographical expression? If so, what are its parameters? Shall we instead define Europe as a cultural community? A unique economic zone? A set of common intellectual traditions? Recent clashes over "European" identity and competing visions of Europe's political and economic future have underscored the urgent relevance of this basic question. This one credit seminar and lecture series will introduce students to ways in which past actors have attempted to define Europe. Invited scholars from disciplines like Political Science, Economics, History, Anthropology, and Architecture will showcase how they grapple with what it means to be "European," what distinguishes Europe from the rest of the globe, and what connects it. These new perspectives will illuminate current debates over national identity and cultural diversity, democracy and its challengers, and other issues of contemporary importance. This course is a gateway to the European Studies concentration within the Global Affairs (Suppl.) major in the Keough School, but students from all majors and Colleges are welcome.
