Funded by the Cornell Institute for European Studies and Cornell University Library, Europe in the World: Perspectives on Communities is a competition and exhibition designed to stimulate and reward student scholarship and creative work that addresses European identities and communities -- within Europe and in relation to globalization.

An event to celebrate Europe in the World was held April 1 in the Amit Bhatia Libe Café in Olin Library. Professor Peter Katzenstein, the Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, delivered the keynote address, Europe in the World: Some Reflections.

A reception followed, where $3,500 in prizes were awarded to Cornell students. Student entries will be on display in Olin Library through summer 2013.
