EU 140	FRAMEWORKS IN SOCIAL AND CULTURAL ANALYSIS
TTh, 12:00-1:30, K 201
Manuel Enverga III

This course introduces students to social science frameworks that are  
employed in analyzing societies and cultures, many of which have their  
origins in Europe. It surveys the writings of Ancient Greek, Roman and  
Medieval philosophers and connects ideas contained within them to more  
modern philosophies of the enlightenment, as well as to the writings  
of early sociologists and anthropologists. The course also examines  
more contemporary theories of society and culture, which take into  
account such concepts as globalization, space, nationalism and  
postcolonialism, ethnicity, nationalism, cyberculture, gender and  
sexuality, leisure and media.

EU 141	EUROPEAN SOCIAL TRANSFORMATIONS: FROM MODERNITY TO POST-MODERNITY
TTh, 1:30-3:00, B 103
Manuel Enverga III

This course traces the major social transformations that occurred in  
Europe as a result of the changes that took place during the modern  
period, which roughly coincided with the spread of the Industrial  
Revolution throughout the region. Among these transformations are the  
changes in modes of production and the subsequent adjustments in  
social inequality, both in terms of social class and in terms of  
gender. The course then links the changes in the modern period to more  
contemporary transformations in postmodernity, which include the  
weakening of modern constructs such as the nation-state in the face of  
globalization.

EU 143	GEOGRAPHY OF CULTURE IN EUROPE
Thurs, 6:00-9:00, CTC 302
Maria Andrea Soco

This course introduces students to the spatial distribution of  
cultures, regions and nation-states in Europe.  Emphasis is on  
defining important geographical concepts and identifying major  
political boundaries, as well as understanding current and recent  
national and ethnic conflicts from the perspective of Geography. The  
course provides a body of knowledge about the creation of places and  
regions, and the major changes that have taken place in European  
landscapes, and exposes students to the human and cultural aspects of  
Geography, looking at how cultures are born, changed and are  
distributed throughout Europe.

EU 194.1 SPECIAL TOPICS IN EUROPEAN BUSINESS: FINANCE
Mon, 6:00-9:00, CTC 304
Dr. Neil Adrian Cabiles

The course is divided into two parts. The first part of the course  
discusses the workings of the Foreign Exchange Market, with a focus on  
Foreign Exchange Rate Determination and Management. This portion of  
the course prepares the students for the main topic of the course (the  
second part), which deals with Monetary Integration in the EU. In the  
second part of the course, the discussions include the criteria for  
the adoption of a Common Currency (i.e. the Euro), its implementation  
and the tasks in participating in the Eurozone. The performance of the  
Euro, its current role and the challenges it faces are also discussed  
in the latter part of the course.

EU 195.4 SPECIAL TOPICS IN EUROPEAN POLITICS: GEOPOLITICS OF THE  
EUROPEAN UNION
Wed, 4:30-7:30, K 201
Dr. Clarita Carlos

This course is an attempt to demonstrate the link between European  
geography, writ large, with the population and resources and  
technology troika. It is an attempt to show that where the European  
Union is located in terms of physical space informs its economics,  
security and defense policies. This is an advance course tackling  
politico-geographic roots of EU. It gives a general overview of issues  
confronting EU such a climate change, human trafficking crimes,  
terrorism and water, and energy crises as these all also affect its  
interstate relations.

EU 197	THE EVOLUTION OF EUROPEAN DIPLOMATIC PRACTICE AND ITS PRESENT  
APPLICATION
TTh, 3:00-4:30, B 102
Manuel Enverga III

Diplomacy and the diplomatic practice are at the core of the  
intergovernmental and supranational institutions that comprise the  
European Union, with diplomats present in all levels of the Union?s  
governance. The diplomatic practices that exist at present, however,  
are not novel inventions. They have undergone a process of historical  
development that began as early as the period of the Ancient Greeks.  
Consequently, the course will trace the evolution of diplomatic  
practice in Europe from the time of the Ancient Greeks to the present,  
with emphasis being placed on the contributions of Renaissance Europe,  
Post-Napoleonic Europe, Post World War I Europe and Post World War II  
Europe.
