World Cultures

 

 

 

 

Use information from the assigned readings, lectures, and class discussions toanswerthe following two questions (you must respond to both):

 

  1. In this class, we have discussed various population movements, such as the Bantu and Polynesian expansions. Discuss any other two population movements in world history and give specific examples showing how they changed cultures or environments in the places where they occurred.

 

  1. Define modernity. Be specific. Identify three of the key elements that led to the evolution of modernity in Europe from the fall of the Roman Empire to the French Revolution.

 

See the big picture, but find the right balance of necessary detail and specifics. Try to tell a narrative story. This requires judgement; there remain many possible focal points and informed responses to these questions.Write 2-3 pp. (pp. = pages) for each essay. Less than two pages will notsuffice, and more than three will represent too much. Use Times New Roman or another standard font of your choice, at 12 points, and double spacing. Do not waste time on footnotes, works cited, and title pages with your signature other an oath, etc. This is not a research paper. Do not go outside of our readings, lectures, and discussions when responding. Just tell me what you know in your words. Get to the point and stay on point. Speak plainly and demonstrate, in writing, what you have learned this semester. Do not forget to show how your learning has advanced our learning outcomes, above.

 

Be sure you carefully read the grading rubric, attached here for your convenience, before submitting this to me.

 

Due: In my office, no later than 1700 on Thursday, 20 December 2018, no late submissions accepted, no exceptions.
