Part 2 - Essay questions

You will be given a choice to tackle one of two of the following essay questions:

1) In the introduction to Kemal Kurspahic’s “Prime Time Crime: Balkan Media in War and Peace,” there is a quote by Elie Wiesel which reads:

“Indifference is not a beginning, it is an end. And, therefore, indifference is always the friend of the enemy for it benefit’s the aggressor, never his victim whose pain is magnified when he or she feels forgotten. The political prisoner in his cell, the hungry children, the homeless refugee, not to respond to their plight, not to relieve their solitude by offering them a spark of hope is to exile them from human memory. And in denying their humanity we betray our own. Indifference then is not only a sin, it is a punishment. And this is one of the most important lessons of this outgoing century’s wide-ranging experiment in good and evil.”

Please write an essay in which you closely read and analyze this quote in an effort to consider the connections it has to the war in Yugoslavia and perhaps other wars within the last century. You can also talk about this quote and its relation to “human nature” as you see fit. Limit your answer to at least 1 full paged that is typed double spaced. Be sure to thoroughly discuss the quote and use specific lecture notes in an effort to connect your thoughts within the context of your essay to your lecture notes.

2) Write an essay in which you carefully consider the idea of nationalism and nationalist movements in the 19th and 20th C in an effort to answer the following key question:
Considering the national movements of the 19th and 20th C in the Balkans, name some of the revolutionaries who helped shape the time period through certain cultural products. Identify and give the significance of at least 3 prominent figures drawing on lectures that apply.

You can also approach the topic of nationalism by focussing on how nationalism can be viewed as both positive and negative by focussing on early aims of nationalism from the 19th and 20th C as well as positive and negative forms of nationalism during the final Yugoslav War (1992-1995).

Please note that the test essay questions are quite broad and you can answer them in any way that you see fit. Your approach is totally up to you.************************All essays should be at least 1 page in length; typed double spaced.************************All answers to identify and give the significance should be written as follows: in the first section you are to answer the who? what? when? where? that should take only about 3 or 4 sentences. The last part of your identification should be the why? Here, you must answer why this item is important and this should be around 3 to 4 sentences too. However, it is hard to judge how long your answer should be because you can answer the first part who? what? when? and where? in a sentence quite easily. The why? part which is the SIGNIFICANCE portion of the test is the one that needs to be longer than one sentence because you are weighing out why something is important. We will look at how to formulate such answers in class. Aids allowed:-you are allowed to use your class notes for this test.  USE OF INTERNET-BASED WEBSITES IS PROHIBITED.
