Aims of the module
To stimulate a European awareness and sensibility in the areas of modern politics, history and literature. To complement a student's interest in other areas (e.g. Politics, History, English literature), to form a grounding for European Studies at Level 2, and to provide an awareness of comparative issues relevant to a variety of Joint Honours combinations. Students who complete the module should feel that their knowledge of twentieth-century European themes is much enhanced, particularly in terms of the interrelationship between cultural and political issues.
