Europe, nations and modernity

edited by Atsuko Ichijo

The idea of Europe, European identities and Europeanization, in short 'Europe', has been conventionally studied in relation to nationalism and the hegemony of nation-states in the modern world. Europe, Nations and Modernity aims to open up a fresh perspective to the study of 'Europe' by placing the discussion of 'what is Europe and what is it to be European?' in a wider context of the study of modernity. As a number of scholars have argued, 'Europe' is a fundamentally contested concept. This collection is inspired by on-going debates and proposes to study Europe by placing it in a tripartite relationship with nations and modernity using 'Europe as modernity' as a key. The volume presents a collection of nine case studies: Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, France, Hungary, Germany, Greece, Turkey and the United Kingdom and provides a map of different constellations of Europe, nations and modernity in today's Europe.
