HUMANITIES 152 EXAM 1:Use the readings for support! If you answer the essay question and use little or no evidence from our texts, you will not do well. Make a claim/interpretation and support it with examples from our readings (this includes the readings from Debating Diversity, Kaleidoscope, and the film—unless specified, all these can be used for textual support). There is no minimum or maximum number of pages to submit; simply answer as best you can. Use as much or as little space as you think you need to use to thoroughly answer the question. And be sure to cite your sources as you use them (simply include the page number and title of work or author in parentheses each time you use it, or footnote each source whenever it’s used).THE QUESTION I CHOOSE WAS:The book used in this class is Kaleidoscope “Stories of the American Experience” Page number 57-65. Title: John Smith (1580-1631)1) How John Smith’s narrative contributing to Eurocentric standards for American identity? What binary oppositions does he construct about “civilization” and how does he construct these binaries? Show how his binaries can be deconstructed or broken down.(An example of breaking down a binary is, for instance, the construction of the “civilized” and “savage” binary. If Whites are civilized because they farm and Indians are savage because they don’t farm, then the binary is, very simply, broken down by Indian tribes who DO farm, or by Whites who hunt. It can also be broken down by virtue of the fact that one culture’s practices may seem “savage” to another culture, if taken out of context. The practice of embalming a dead body, for instance, might seem odd to a culture that does not embalm its dead. So, the notion of some distinct line between “civilized” and “savage” is blurred when we break down the binary. What traits are associated with civilization and what traits are associated with savagery and how are these identifying traits blurred by what we discover as we read about these groups? Use at least 1 other reading for additional support.)
