Berlin Conference- This conference was called by the German chancellor Otto von Bismarck and was called to set up dividing lines within Africa. It took place between 1884 and 1885. The reason why Bismarck called the meeting is because of the “Scramble for Africa”. This new wave of Imperialism could be said to have begun in Egypt and the creation of the Suez Canal. This new wave of Imperialism was name “New Imperialism”. The Suez Canal was built across the isthmus of Suez in Egypt. It was designed by Ferdinand de Lesseps and was opened in 1869 under Egyptian control. The khedive of Egypt, Ismail, believed that the opening of the canal would lead to success economically for Egypt, but however this was not the case. Instead of helping Egypt it greatly helped the Europeans, especially the British and allowed ships to sail from Europe to India in two weeks. The lowered freighting costs allowed industrialized nations in Europe, such as Britain, to benefit substantially from the Suez Canal.

    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.
