Transcript Title: WHAT IS EUROPE 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course addresses the conceptual history of Europe. Its key focus lies on the notion that European history is a process driven by conflicting visions of historical actors on the past, present, and future of Europe. In this course, students learn to recognize the variety of normative meanings that politicians, administrators, activists and intellectuals have attributed to Europe and related concepts such as “Mitteleuropa” and the “German Question.” The following topics are covered: cultural unity based on Roman and Christian foundations versus cultural diversity; the translation of the vision of Europe into a political reality; tension between national sovereignty and European unity; the integration of Germany into the European state system. In group discussions students discuss the ways in which these historically laden concepts continue to exert influence on contemporary political debates.
