The Roots of European Identity in Folklore
The project aimed at analysing factors that determine national identity of Poles, Turks, Hungarians, Czechs, Spaniards and Germans. The analysis of fables and legends of individual European nations served as a starting point for the discussion. Project participants discussed the values that are of importance to individual nations and compared them to their native legends. The theses have been presented in the form of collages, posters and short commentaries. The end product of the project was the European Value Flower in the form of a digital map containing fairy tales, legends, and commentaries to them. The interactive map of values showing similarities and differences between individual nations was a result of work of international student groups, which was also a linguistic challenge.
