Imagining Europe: Representations and Images of a Continent (6 points)


Leader: To be advised

Not offered in 2003.

Synopsis: Imagining Europe begins with classical notions of Europe and the medieval idea of Christendom. Through the study of literature, painting, architecture, travellers' tales, cinema and other sources, it traces the development of the idea of Europe as a region defined both geographically and by its culture in the context of Europe's place in the world. The subject will trace the idea of multiple Europes and conclude by looking at the re-emergence, since the late 1980s, of the idea of 'Central Europe'.
