Keep Part 1 and 2 seperate
Part 1 (225 words)
share your thoughts on “White Man’s Burden.” What aspect of imperial ideology did you find the most important, or most intriguing?
Part 2 (225 Words)
This weeks readings describe the imperial ideology that justified European colonialism—Kipling calls it the White Man’s Burden, while Adas refers to the civilizing mission ideology—but these are quite similar. Write a paragraph (+/-225) in which you describe this ideology. I want to see evidence that you have read the texts—so include specific references to ideas in the texts, use examples and quotes and make connections. I know this is just a paragraph. Part of the work is synthesizing – what to you are the most important aspects of this ideology?)
