Modern Wars in the World and Globalism

Unit 5 Discussion Board Assignment

One of the most critical outcomes of armed conflict is the impact on societies. Armed conflict has far-reaching effects and substantially impacts societies. For this discussion, please choose from the following is a list of conflicts the United States fought after 1918. Please post a discussion with a description of 1 major consequence the conflict had on the United States society and how this war affected American sensibilities. Please also discuss if the chosen war changed the way Americans viewed themselves and how the war may have altered America’s role in the world.

Choose 1 war from the following list:

  • World War I
  • World War II
  • Korean Conflict
  • Vietnam Conflict
  • Cold War

Use the following outline to format your response:

Paragraph 1

  • Analyze 1 major consequence the conflict had on United States’ society.
  • How did this war affect American sensibilities, including the way Americans viewed the war and themselves?

Paragraph 2

  • Did the war change America’s role in the world? Explain your answer.
  • Was the outcome of the war beneficial or detrimental to the United States (or a combination of both)?

The Holocaust

The question your paper seeks to answer is: what is the most significant even OR moment OR experience in Twentieth-century European history? 
PLEASE WRITE ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST. 

what in your mind defines the twentieth century? what event of moment shaped European society in the 20th century and fundamentally impacted or transformed the course of European History? Feel free to be creative and choose something that resonated or stood out for you. 

In the paper, you will need an intro paragraph that explains and contextualize the event. However, the bulk of the paper should focus on the impact of this event and why you have deemed it “the most significant.” Providing a simple narrative of the event of moment you have chosen will not suffice; rather, you must analyze the event and its implications and legacies for modern European history. In other words, your essay must be analytical rather than descriptive. avoid counterfactual history and “what is” speculation. instead, focus on what did happen and what the event, moment or experience brought in its wake.

Some questions to think about:
• What was the impact of the event? What were its aftereffects?

• How did it change, alter or affect the larger trajectory of the twentieth century?

• How does it represent or symbolize the twentieth century?

The bibliography for your paper must include at least five scholarly academic sources that are relevant** to the topic. 

* An academic source includes peer-reviewed books or articles written by scholars.
Internet sources like Wikipedia or generic sources of information like encyclopedias are
not acceptable for use in this assignment.
** “Relevant” means that the source should be written by a scholar in the field and be in a
publication related to the field. For example, if you are writing a paper on the Nuremberg
Laws, choosing an article on the Nuremberg Laws from the Journal of Agricultural History is not the best choice and suggests that you only did a very cursory search.

Essay Topics

Pick one question as the essay topic.
1. Spinoza and Maimon were among the first Jews to join the mainstream of the
Western philosophical tradition. Why did they break from traditional
Judaism? What did their careers have in common, and how and why did
they differ?
2. Many authors of classic autobiographies are severely critical of their younger
selves. Is this true of Solomon Maimon? How does he present himself in his
autobiography?

3. Amos Elon’s The Pity of It All offers wonderful portraits of German-Jewish
intellectual from Mendelssohn’s era through the twentieth century. Does he
go beyond portraiture toward a more general explanation of Jewish
intellectual dynamism in the German context? What are some of the
principal elements of such an explanation, given what we have read so far?
4. Compare and contrast any two images of Jewish scholars and/or scholarship
in any two texts we have read this quarter. Do these depictions of traditional
Jewish learning and pedagogy suggest a wider critique of Eastern European
Jewish life?
5. Examine images of women in any two or three texts by our Yiddish writers.
Again, how do the female characters created by these writers illuminate the
strengths and weaknesses of the Eastern European Jewish community during
the nineteenth century?
6. Sholem Aleichem and I.L. Peretz were not only among the founders of a great
literary tradition, but also brilliant social critics. Choose one story by each,
and show how a critique of the Jewish world of their time is embedded in
each of them.

Pick two episodes/elements–incidents, conversations, extended situations, the portrayal fo significant characters, etc. –from the film “Reed: Mexico Insurgente” and compare them with the same episodes/elements as portrayed in the book by John Reed, Insurgente Mexico. Compare the two and say something about how they differ in the book and movie versions, or how they are substantially the same, and why. This will obviously entail reading the book first with some care, since not everything in the book is included in the film. In your discussion comparing the two sets of episodes/elements, pay some attention to how they are handled in each case in the film–are they compressed in time, are they dramatized greatly in comparison to the way they are narrated in the book, are characters added or subtracted from scenes, etc. –and discuss in terms of cinematic story telling techniques. You may only wish to allude not only to the story narrated, the way it is filmed, the way actors are directed , the way color, music, lighting, camera work, or other elements are employed and so forth.

This paper serves as a historiographical approach to the use of torture during the Algerian decolonization. The paper should provide the different approaches, theses and trends that appear in different historians’ articles and perspectives. It is not just mere recitation and rewording of the series of events that took place. It is more of assembling and gathering the different approaches by different sources (a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 15) to provide for general trends that have existed throughout the literature.The introduction should serve as an introduction (very well obvious to the paper), state its purpose, content and briefly state the outline of the paper.

The development should consist of subsections that provide for the different emerging trends in the literature. For example, this issue has been written differently by different French, American and Arab authors and they respectively provide different accounts as to why the use of torture in Algeria took place. An example can be:

I- Historiography by French Historians.
II- Approaches taken by American Historians
III- Trends Among Arab Historians.
This is just an artificial outline, as the outline shall be determined in accordance with the research.

Using the sources, a trend shall be identified either in accordance to the nationalities of the authors, periods of when the source was written, etc.The conclusion shall conclude the paper but also offer an opening perspective on the issue: how to advance the field forward, how historiography shall take a turn and what issues shall be discussed, elaborated, and even INCORPORATED into the history to account for a more-developed source. In other words, what approaches and changes can be done in order to solve the inconsistencies that are present in the literature and what can be done to provide for a more consistent one?
