Cultures and Identities in Europe

European University Institute via FutureLearn


Get a greater understanding of Europe and its people

What is European identity? What do we understand and promote as European culture? On this course you will answer these questions and others as you critically consider the formation of diverse identities and cultures in Europe.

You will explore fundamental European policies on culture, creativity and the media, and shed light on the importance of memories and shared heritage. You will also look at the policy behind European cultural and media industries and question current approaches to cultural creativity that rely heavily on economics.

This course is for anyone interested in European culture, but will be of particular interest to those working in the arts, culture and heritage.
