Abstract

Based on in-depth interviews in Strasbourg with eighty men and eighty women, ranging in age from 101 to 20 years, from many parts of the world, the A. draws out of these testimonies a wide range of insights into issues of identity, race, nationality, culture, politics, heritage and representation. He thereby gives a unique view of what it means, and has meant over the past century, to be a European. Successive sections examine Strasbourg as a city of an old Europe, set in the geopolitical conundrum of Alsace-Lorraine; and then Strasbourg as a city that houses institutions of the European Union in a transnational Europe with greater mobility for many people, including university students and labour migrants. – (HC)
