European Encounters - EUST2601

Year - 2020

European writers and intellectuals have reflected critically on their own values, attitudes, customs and cultures through comparison with other cultures and societies since the Enlightenment. This long history has resulted in profound reconsiderations of the concept of Europe and its civilization. The aim of European Encounters is to consider the ways in which Europeans have questioned their own value-systems through literary and intellectual encounters with other nations, cultures and civilizations since the beginnings of modernity.
