Description
EUROPEAN IDENTITY BETWEEN HISTORY AND EUROPEAN UNION CULTURAL POLICY
This course is explores the state of the European union today with respect to the issue of collective identity formation by integrating the historical development of the EU with studying its evolving institutional structure. The course examines how culture which was originally only an afterthought of European integration has gained in importance since the overarching permissive consensus with which European populations passively supported the integration process began to crumble with the Maastricht treaty of 1992. Through a variety of sources from across the social sciences, political theory and social philosophy, the course elucidates how EU cultural policy aims to engender a transnational European identity.
