SOC 352: European Integration

(1 Unit)
SOC 101 or ANTH 105 and junior standing or permission of instructor.
This course provides an in-depth examination of contemporary European issues post-1989. Of special interest will be the social challenges of integrating vastly disparate societies into an economic, political and social union. Europe, both as a continent and an idea, stands at a crossroads. The course will begin with an overview of the purpose of new Pan-European intuitions and the competing forces of integration and resistance. Next, the course explores various social problems Europe as a whole must confront: peace & security, economic crisis, belonging and exclusion, fertility and others. Finally, the course concludes by examining the potential future of European society. Schoene.
