Class Number: 

Travel across multiple countries and explore the limits of coexistence in both the "old" and "new" Europe.

  • Study theories of co-existence in Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany
  • Analyze the usage of voices, museums, food, music, histories, protests, organizations and government initiatives to better understand how ideas of "Europe" and "Europeaness" changed over the past 100 years and continue to change

The program focuses on both historical and contemporary minorities: the Jews of Europe and most specifically Poland; the Roma of Northern Bohemia; the Vietnamese in Prague, the Turkish in Germany and recent refugees across European Union member states.
