Modern scholars write of the “making of Europe” and trace its long history, even if the Europeans they describe did not know they were European. In the recent centuries, it has become a real thing, a thing of debate. We will focus on the latter, but the lectures will range more broadly. We will discuss tensions around the creation, loss, re-creation, fragmentation of the idea and the thing in the modern period, since the beginning of the modern period.
