Course Description : In 2016, mounting anti-EU sentiments in Europe culminated in the Brexit vote. Differences between European countries, rather than being regarded as signs of cultural and economic richness, were increasingly outlined as latent contradictions of the EU integration project. How large are such differences ? And what about commonalities ? This course aims at surveying national societies in Europe, assuming (but also discussing) the persistent centrality of the nation state as key template of social life. Building on the macro-micro dialectics, the course unfolds as an encounter with ‘structures' and patterns of
individual ‘agency' across European societies. With a comparative approach, the course draws on empirical research on the characteristics and behaviours of institutions and actors. Trajectories of convergence, divergence and hybridization are illustrated as forming a complex texture that ultimately deﬁnes the uniqueness of 'Europe' in the contemporary world.
