(tylko po angielsku) Students will understand the process of invention of European symbolism, mythology heritage and history as a means providing the citizens of the EU with a conceptual framework owing to which the European (and civilian) identity takes its form. As special emphasis will be given to anthropological perspectives of analysis, students will be familiarized with the process of self and other invention in contemporary Europe; in other words how social, political and ethnic exclusion and inclusion are symbolically constructed.
