European Identity in the 21st Century - EUST1001

Year - 2020

The European Union is the world's most progressive supranational power. In this unit we discuss contemporary Europe, focusing on the regions and ethno-national identities. We look at the EU and the socio-cultural and political forces both holding it together and pulling it apart. We study contemporary materials including films and novels in order to enter into the realities of life in Europe now. No language other than English is required.
