FYS297 - The Idea of Europe
Course Long Title
The Idea of Europe
What is Europe? Is it the cradle of all that is civilized and cultured or the blood-soaked ground of empires, genocides, and revolutions? How does one mediate between these two extremes to arrive at a European identity for the twenty-first century? What can we learn from the last 100 years of European history that will help us better understand Europe’spresent? In this course, students explore these questions by engaging deeply with recent literature and scholarship, film and other visual arts, and current news media.
