HIS 342 Week 3 Assignment 1 Revolutionary Nationalism and the Middle East / THE MIDDLE EAST
Revolutionary Nationalism and the Middle East [CLOs: 2, 3, 5]. Due by Day 7. Nationalism and revolution often go hand in hand. Yet, while nationalism might lead to revolution, and perhaps national independence, it is much broader than revolution, and one should not be confused with the other. In your course text, James Gelvin (2016) notes, “All nationalists believe that nations can be identified by certain characteristics that all its citizens hold in common. These characteristics include the linguistic, ethnic, religious, or historical traditions that make a nation distinctive” (p. 221).
Write a three page paper (excluding title and reference pages) that includes a definition of nationalism drawn from academic sources in the introduction of the paper, (Review “Academic Research” in the “Student Responsibilities and Policies” tab for a discussion of what sources should be used for academic research.) and analyzes post-World War I nationalistic movements in Turkey, Egypt, and Iran by comparing and contrasting them. (Be sure to read chapter twelve in your textbook for an introduction to these nationalist movements.) Your paper should look to examine nationalism in these countries, not merely the history behind their independence. You must cite a minimum of two scholarly sources in addition to your course text. Your paper must be formatted according to the APA guidelines outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
