Where Is Europe?
A research conference hosted by the
Department of History of the University of Pittburgh
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
April 9th-10th, 2004
Lower Lounge of William Pitt Union
With the unforseen success of European integration in the last decades, the term "Europe" has become more ubiquitous than ever. Perusal of an encyclopedia edited fifty years ago uncovers only a few entries under the headwords "Europe" and "European." Current encyclopedias, however, contain dozens of them, from Europa to Eurotunnel. But the more we use the term, the less we know what Europe means, geographically, culturally or historically. The very idea of Europe has become complex and contested. The purpose of this conference is to explore and discuss the changing and ambiguous meanings of Europe from a historical perspective.
