What and where and who is Europe? This unique collection contends that Europe cannot be defined as simply a particular geographic location or a group of citizens who inhabit the same place and share a culture. Instead, Europe is a question to be answered by the teachers and students who study it. A collaborative and multidisciplinary collection, Engaging Europe explores Europe through history, literature, philosophy, music, and ethical narratives. This book is a major part of an experiment that hopes to find more intellectually exciting ways to teach Europe to students in American higher education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Taking a welcome interdisciplinary approach, this brief yet insightful book succeeds in its stated ambition of making readers contemplate 'rethinking a changing continent.' Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
This is a delightful volume. Fascinating, illuminating, always intelligent, it collects together a variety of thoughtful reflections that probe the 'Europe' of our history, science, imagination, hopes, fears, dreams, values, and, above all, of our minds. If it is true that one cannot go home again, apparently one can still return for the first time. -- Richard A. Cohen, author of Out of Control: Confrontations between Spinoza and Levinas
This lively, wide-ranging, splendid assortment of essays highlights Europe's grand intellectual traditions, its tragic passions and moral dramas. It casts European history and its future as both a deeply familiar and a de-familiarized, largely uncharted terrain-a space of the mind and a riddle to try to solve. -- Giuseppe Mazzotta, Yale University
An interesting, novel, and stimulating scholarly contribution to our way of conceptualizing the European experience. -- Ulf Hedetoft, Aalborg University, Denmark
