Cele kształcenia:

(tylko po angielsku) This course deals with the process of the construction of European social and cultural collective identities, seen as a historical development and as a present transformation. Primary attention will be given to the present situation in Europe and its different segments: West and East, North and South. The identity of Europe is understood here as plural – Europeans have various collective identities and the course will examine some of them, especially local/regional, ethnic and national, as well as gender, and will discuss the complexity of the issue of European identity. The concept of a single European identity, even if understood as an internally pluralistic mosaic, is still problematic, it is an opportunity for and a danger to the European cultural heritage. Perspectives of European integration will be discussed in view of the development of democracy and civil society, nationalism, ethnic revival, migration, and the attempt to create European citizenship. Students will gain historical and sociographic knowledge of processes of collective identity construction in Europe, but they will also be given intellectual, theoretical and conceptual instruments to understand and analyse the social and cultural processes of identity construction.

Forma i warunki zaliczenia:

(tylko po angielsku) Students are expected to attend all the classes, and to take an active role in discussions. There is literature suggested for each class, which all the students are required to read.

The essay should ideally have a format of a publishable academic article, with a clear structure, research questions or hypotheses, presentation of data, conclusions, literature references etc. Originality is the main criterion of assessment of the quality of the essay. The essay is worth 50% of the final grade, another 50% is given for the group project, in which:

- Each group (max. 3-4 people) is expected to come up with an original topic (including a short empirical study) and propose it in form of a 1-page outline.

- At the end of the course each group is expected to deliver a final presentation (including visuals) and write a project report with clearly outlined sections for each participating group member.

- Each group member should submit a self-assessment form.

The aim of the project is to investigate and explore examples of identity construction on various levels through either observing the public spaces, following social movements, interviewing activists etc. The students need to consult the project’s topic and planned activities with the seminar instructors and prepare a 1-page project outline by mid-March.
