European Studies Today

In this course, students will explore European current affairs, cultural developments, and cutting edge research by directly engaging with officials, artists, and scholars in Nanovic-sponsored events. Students will be required to attend five events, as well as instructor-led debriefing sessions. While exposing students to new research and debates, this course will simultaneously demonstrate both the contested nature of European studies and how European scholarship is produced. 

Students from all majors and colleges are welcome.

Europe Through Film

What can we learn about Europe by exploring its cinema? Based on an extended version of the Nanovic Institute’s European Films Series each semester, the content of this course will focus on the relationship between contemporary European cinema and the European ideas and realities it finds compelling in terms of social and imaginative power. The course will include some history of cinema, but emphasis will be laid on using cinema as a way of stimulating questions about the nature of Europe today. 

Open to students from all majors and years.
