Conceptualizing Europe / History of EU Integration
Potsdam University, Potsdam Spring School

The seminar provides a discussion of the history and the cultural context of European integration. Theories of community construction and nationalism will be examined, in order to provide a broader context for what is understood as "Europe."

After an outline of European history before 1945, we will focus on the period of 1945 up to now to analyze steps taken towards integration, and to contemplate current issues regarding EU enlargement, cultural diversity and politics.
