I’m working on a history Essay and need support to help me learn.
Directions: The exam will consist of one essay of 700-750 words (you can go up to 900 but no longer, please) A good exam answer will have a clear introduction with an argument and will include specific evidence/examples from lectures, the textbook, the primary documents and the course films (where applicable). A strong grade must include material from both lectures and readings, and you should include parenthetical notes. See the attached rubric and guide.
1.The idea of citizenship was introduced in the Enlightenment, but between the late 18th century and the late 19th century, different groups of people debated what this meant, and who could be a citizen.

What were the main definitions of a citizen during the Enlightenment, French Revolution, Haitian Revolution, and a proponent of the new political ideologies that emerged in the 19th century (liberalism, socialism, Chartism nationalism, conservatism, abolitionism, and feminism)? [keep in mind that there would not be one definition in any of these periods]
2.In what ways was the Industrial Revolution in England and later in the rest of Europe revolutionary? Why was this term used? To answer this question, consider the changing nature, location and meaning of work; the role of technology and science; social and gender consequences; environmental legacies., and political movements such as the rise of socialism and Chartism.
3.What is nationalism? When did it appear and how has it shaped European politics and culture in at least three of the following moment: The French Revolution and Revolutionary Wars, the Revolutions of 1848, the formation of Modern Italy and the Making of Modern Germany? You might consider how culture/religion/language/notions of history/economics/food, art, statues, music, celebrations/and war all played a role in making at least two nations that we have studied.
4.Do you think that the French, Haitian, and Industrial revolutions created more equality and liberty, or new forms of exploitation based on class, gender and race?
5.Set up a debate between five of the following individuals: Rousseau; Cesare Beccaria, Olaudah Equino, Abbé Sieyès, a member of the Society of the Friends of Blacks, Olympe de Gouges, Toussaint Lourverture, Klemens von Metternich, Hannah More, John Stuart Mill, Robert Owen, Karl Marx, a “Chartist,” Otto von Bismark, Guiseppe Garibaldi and Louis Blanc.
Each should answer the following question:
What is the key problem you see in society and what do you think the best solution to that problem is?
You can set this up as a creative answer with each speaking in the first person, but if you do so be sure to use exact quotes.
