We have investigated multi-faceted cultural conditions of the present and historical Europe, which has been undergoing a radical transformation in the fields of politics, economics and culture as is epitomized by the introduction ofEuro currency. According to the individual academic interest in the countries of Europe, we conducted several researches in a common quest for the identity of Europe : what make it a unity in a turbulent situation sparred by the nationalistic movements since 1989.
1) an inter-circle study meeting hosted by Prof. Hashimoto, who lectured on "The Neolithic Era and the Cult of Earth Goddess."
2) a public lecture "The use ofa single language in the novels of Joseph Conrad" by Professor Masahiko Nishi.
3) and a public lecture 'The right of culture and related laws in Europe" by Professor Man Kobayashi.
The last two lecturers were invited.
Being a researcher of a specific country like France and Germany, it was a challenging task to shape a common standing to analyze cultural issues in Europe and we believe it was also a rewarding project.
