HISTORY 51: ADVANCE QUESTIONS FOR THE MIDTERM EXAM I. ESSAY QUESTIONS (ONLY ONE OF THESE WILL APPEAR ON THE MIDTERM) 1. The history of North America is distinguished by the creation of multiple new ethnic identities. Compare two of these processes of ethnic formation in the Americas during the period we have studied so far. What were the significant causes and turning points in the creation process of each ethnicity? Are there parallels that hold true across ethnicities? Or does each process of ethnic formation proceed according to its own unique dynamic? 2. According to a recent article in the Boston Globe, a group of historians held a debate a few days ago to determine which of two sites, colonial Virginia or colonial New England, should be considered the “birthplace of America.” Based on what you have learned so far in History 0510, how would you evaluate the claims of each region to this title? And which place would you select? (If you wish, you may propose an alternative locale; be sure to explain your answer.)
