Wartime Europe as seen by others – Indian and African soldiers in Europe in WW1


Koller, Christian (2012). Wartime Europe as seen by others – Indian and African soldiers in Europe in WW1. In: Pinheiro, Teresa; Cieszynska, Beata; Franco, Eduardo. Ideas of / for Europe: An Interdisciplinary Approach to European Identity. Frankfurt / Bern: Peter Lang, 516-528.

Abstract

The current attempt in European politics to develop a European identity makes scientific research about discourses on Europe especially relevant. This book takes an analytical gaze at philosophical and political attempts to conceptualise Europe from antiquity to the present and contributes to the understanding of how they are intertwined with the historical contexts in which they have been forged. The volume offers an interdisciplinary approach to the topic of ideas of and for Europe - historical concepts of Europe, Europe as seen from its peripheries and from outside, current concepts of European identity, European memorial culture and reflections on Europe's prospects - and is of special interest to anyone concerned with questions of European identity.
