Omschrijving “Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for…”.

Thus John Lennon exhorted his listeners in 1971, equating a world without nation-states with the absence of conflict. The reality of contemporary Europe shows otherwise. The multi-faceted nature of identities and histories persists and engenders crises, productive or otherwise, even in the purportedly unified space of Europe. Utopian and dystopian visions proliferate and colonise our life-worlds in the current climate of uncertainty and risk.

In the creative space of this course, students will engage with and envision their own narratives of European unity and diversity that will be fundamental to shaping Europe’s Tomorrow! You will explore and experience the co-operative and adversarial dimensions of identity construction through pioneering role-play and film-making, and thereby map the fine line dividing utopian and dystopian visions of Europe’s future.
Come if you dare to imagine!
