Related Issue 2 ‘key concepts’ The first thing we’re going to do today is cover some of the concepts from your Related Issue 2 study guide that I feel we need to go over once more as a class. These are based upon what I’ve read/seen on your projects & chapter review booklets, as well as what is actually on the Unit Test.
Related Issue 2 ‘key concepts’ REMINDER: The ‘Related Issue 2 Unit Test’ date is WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13 (If you know that you will be absent this day, please let me know in advance so that we can make arrangements)
Chapter 5 The first thing to clarify… Historical globalization: When was it? (what dates/events did it fall between?)
Chapter 5 The first thing to clarify… Historical globalization is a specific time period, between Columbus ‘discovering’ America (1492) and the end of WWII (1945). 1492 Columbus sails the ocean blue 1945 The Second World War ends
Chapter 5 The term historical globalization is NOT interchangeable with the term globalization… If a question asks about historical globalization, it’s asking you about stuff that happened between these very specific two dates (most of the stuff from RI #2). 1492 Columbus sails the ocean blue 1945 The Second World War ends
Chapter 5 What is Imperialism? How is different from Colonialism?
Chapter 5 Imperialism is conquering other countries/areas to increase the size of your ‘mother country’ and to get new resources. Colonialism is the founding of colonies on these conquered areas.
Imperialism = Conquering other countries for land/resources
Colonialism = Founding colonies, or new countries/cities, on these conquered areas.
Mercantilism = Colonies only sending resources to their ‘mother country’, and buying goods from them.
Chapter 5 American colonists threw British tea into the Boston harbor during the which event? Why did they do this?
Chapter 5 Boston Tea Party: American colonists were tired of Britain’s mercantilist policies (taxing the tea, etc.)
Chapter 6 What does the term ethnocentrism mean? Ethnocentrism: Seeing the world through the ‘glasses’ of your specific culture. Judging every other culture by the standards of your own. What does the term ethnocentrism mean?
Chapter 6 What does the term Eurocentrism mean? Eurocentrism: European ethnocentrism; seeing the entire world through the ‘glasses’ of European culture. Comparing all non-European cultures to your own.
Scramble for Africa: Imperialist Europeans divided the continent up amongst themselves.
Africa before the Scramble for Africa Africa after the Scramble for Africa
Europeans colonized Africa without regard for the indigenous people… They felt it was the “White Man’s Burden” to assimilate these indigenous Africans. “The White Man’s Burden” By Rudyard Kipling Take up the White Man's burden-- Send forth the best ye breed-- Go bind your sons to exile To serve your captives' need; To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild-- Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.
This “White Man’s Burden” is a paternalistic (fatherly) perspective: Europeans sort of felt that the Indigenous peoples were ‘children’ to be taught/taken care of. “The White Man’s Burden” By Rudyard Kipling Take up the White Man's burden-- Send forth the best ye breed-- Go bind your sons to exile To serve your captives' need; To wait in heavy harness, On fluttered folk and wild-- Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.
Chapter 7 What were some of the big events that happened in the relationship between European Canadians & Canadian First Nations?
Chapter 7 Indian Act: Document signed by Canadian government & First Nations, forcing First Nations people to register & making them unequal (controversial – good or bad?) Residential Schools: Schools where First Nations children were sent to live & be assimilated into European culture. Poor conditions; many died/were emotionally scarred.
Residential Schools were run by both the Canadian government & Christian churches.
