Note: Your essay must include concrete references to the readings on each

Prompt 1:
How did the idea of self-determination shape political developments in
modern South Asia? Discuss with reference to the period, c. 1857-1971.
[Note: You do not have to discuss every event or personality in this
period, select those that best support your analysis and use concrete
examples to back up your argument].


Prompt 2:
Two empires ruled large parts of early modern and modern South Asia:
the Mughal and the British empires. At the height of their power, the
Mughal Empire and British Empire had to marshal both consent and
coercion to stay in power. Yet the two types of imperial authority were
also different in nature. Discuss with examples.

As with the midterm exam your essay will be graded for argument,
organization, evidence, grammar and punctuation. Treat each essay as an
academic exercise and avoid overly casual phrasing or slang. Essays should
have an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. You may use all
readings and lectures for examples to support your analysis. Since you have
completed a research paper, you may bring in that material if relevant to your
argument. Cite all quotes and keep citations simple and in-text. Attach a works
cited page to the exam. There is no need to cite class lectures.
