European Studies


European Studies focuses on modern European politics, societies and cultures, past and present. European Studies staff are experts on a range of European countries and regions spanning the entire continent – from Ireland to Russia, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia – and work in a number of interdisciplinary fields such as intellectual history, memory studies, and transnational issues such as religion, minorities, and governance.
