What Is Europe?

LIT 273

Examines the construction of such identity throughout history, ending with today's European Union, at a moment in which integration of 'Eastern' countries such as Turkey or Russia remains a hotly debated issue. Consistent attention devoted to literary, cinematic and artistic works which attempt to imagine a European Culture, as well as the evolution of aesthetics, and literary and art history.
