Resources from the Center for European Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Europe-related resources compiled by the Center for European Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As part of their 2020 Europe Week (which was impacted by the pandemic), our friends at CES combiled a fantastic collection of resources, including a Europe Week Playlist, a European Film List, a virtual Swedish Coffee Break, Virtual Museum Tours, European Trivia on Kahoot, European orchestras, and a fun Virtual Scavenger Hunt (hint: you should know something about Tarheels in addition to Europe to win). Check it out!
The CES has also compiled a number of helpful external resources, many of which come directly from the European Union.
EU Studies Center at the City University of New York's International Horizons brings scholarly expertise to bear on timely international issues related to Europe.
