MMW 6 – Edmond Chang    01:37 MMW 6 – Edmond Chang 31.03.08 Midterm 1: pg. 1-40 The isms were the central focus of MMW 5, but in the 19 th  Century all of the isms  were in their nascent state. It is in the 20 th  Century that we see all of the isms  come to a state of maturity. And as a result of this they come into conflict with  each other. In the 20 th  century we will focus a lot on the struggles between each  of these movements. Full blown nationalistic movements vs. imperialism. The nationalist movements  trying to break away from the yoke of its colonial past The defining struggle: communism vs. capitalist democracies  (two hegemonic  ideologies going head to head against each other) We will also see the continuing conflict between liberalism (started as the  enlightenment) and the bi-products of liberalism -–> reactionary conservatism  and religious fundamentalism. In many ways these things are the bi-products of  liberal ideas, as they came about as a reaction to liberal aspirations. All of these  struggles still define where we are today. Examples of nationalism today: Tibet, Kosovo The debate on immigration goes on today because some of us cling on to liberal  notions of inclusion and compassion While others react to this with exclusion, and elitism; some people cling to the  notion that some should be a privileged group Security vs. Civil Liberties We will look this week on the relationship between Liberalism and World War 1 World War 1 was a cataclysmic event that utterly shocked the world. The war was  different from anything which people had seen. It shocked cultures and societies  to their very foundation, and in many ways represents the first test of liberalism.  In the face of such horror, liberalism was still able to sustain itself as a viable  ideology. The war could also be seen as an implosion of liberalism itself. The war  was the final outcome of all of the contradictions which define the liberal ideology. There are many contradictions within enlightenment: talk of rights and liberty,  simultaneously with exclusion through different forms of repression

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
