Kursinhalt

This free online course explains Europe as a cultural and political product.

We revisit perceived truths about the meaning of European identity. We examine how cultural knowledge and facts were constructed to further post-World War II integration. We will help you understand and identify the complexities of the contemporary crises of European integration and support you in developing novel responses to these crises.

We cover such topics as European culture, religion, modernity, the nation-state, democracy and the Other.

The course has been developed by the Euroculture programme, a multi-university master’s and research programme on European culture and politics.

This course is designed for learners with a personal and/or professional interest in Europe, politics and culture. Those with some pre-knowledge of European history, culture and politics will find this course to be interesting and enriching. Those who studied Europe from either a political or cultural point of view will find much in this course that complements their previous studies. It is ideal for humanities and social sciences students and graduates, policy makers and those working in non-government organisations (NGOs).
