Midterm outline

More than half of socials has passed, and I can’t believe it! I’m going to miss the class so much next semester. Anyways, I’ve set up my outline rather straightforwardly so I’ll just put it here.

Collective identity is constructed and can change over time

-How Columbus’ image has changed over time (discriminatory policies)

-Martin Luther and the English

-Cromwell’s development as the British’s ruler

Emerging ideas and ideologies profoundly influence societies and events

-Donald Trump is a Republican with very conservative views that managed to get elected. He has interesting theories such as global warming being a “Chinese hoax.”

-Luther with his idea of Protestantism

-Columbus forced the Arawak to submit to his Eurocentric ways

Disparities in power alter the balance of relationships between individuals and between societies

– the Arawak were enslaved by Columbus because the Europeans had stronger weapons than them (imperialism and colonialism)

-Cromwell took became Lord Protector, scales were tipped, had more power than any other ruler

-Charles I used the divine right of kings to his advantage and took power away from the parliament.
