In what ways has nationalism been central to European history in the period from 1815 to the present? A. First, briefly describe the role played by nationalism in AT LEAST 5 events or phenomena in Europe since 1815. Refer to primary source texts from the course as much as possible, and be sure to include examples from both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. B. Now look for patterns that tell us something about the way nationalism has affected Europe: explain in detail, with examples, a variety of ways in which nationalism has encouraged peace or prosperity, and a variety of ways in which it has been the basis for violence or conflict. C. Identify what common preconditions existed in those instances where nationalism had positive effects, and what common preconditions existed in the instances where nationalism had negative effects. D. Come to some conclusion of your own about the significance of nationalism to 19th- and 20th-century European history. Note, this conclusion cannot be “it was good” or “it was bad”: explain in detail how you think nationalism has motivated different people for good or ill in different places, and what patterns, if any, can explain these different outcomes, and how those conclusions should guide us today. Be sure to articulate your overall position or “take” in a one-sentence “main claim.” E. Address at least ONE counter-argument(any existing argument from the readings or lecture or your speculation about what a reasonable person might object to), and explain why you do not find this counter-argument fully convincing, while also suitably acknowledging any limits or qualifications to your claim(s).
