What is the purpose of this assignment?
The goal of this assignment is to expose you to a variety of perspectives both in support of and against imperialism from the late 1800’s-early 1900’s in order for you to both understand the rhetorical appeals various leaders were making as well as responses to and critiques of imperialism.
Additionally, these readings will allow you to apply the theories of imperialism to actual rhetoric of the Scramble for Africa time period.
