Overview

We Europeans? explores the relationship between media and identity along the fault lines and fissures of the shifting ethnicities, religions, tastes, generations, and languages that make up contemporary Europe. Addressing topics such as film, television, public monuments, and the press, an international group of contributors reveal how European identity is shaped as the continent administratively consolidates. In essays that explore cultural homogenization, longed-for identities, and the fears surrounding transnational media, this volume uncovers the intricate interactions of history and memory as they inform the European present.
