University of Toronto Department of History (2012-2013) History 107Y1-Y: Approaches to Modern East Asian History DECEMBER TERM TEST GUIDE Date: Tuesday December 4, 2012 Time: 6:10 P.M. Location: the term test will be held at the Haultain Building, ROOMS 403 & 410 Length: 1 hour and 50 minutes The test will consist of 3 parts. The questions for this test are derived from material we covered in class starting with the Qing Dynasty (week 4, Tuesday October 2, 2012) to the end of term, as well as from material covered in your tutorials. However, it is expected that you also know general material that was covered in the first 3 lectures (e.g., Confucianism, the status of women, etc.) as much of that is relevant to subjects discussed throughout the term. When studying for the test concentrate on topics and themes that we covered in class and in the tutorials. There will be no specific questions on material in the textbook that we did not cover in class or tutorials. However, this does not mean that such material is not useful. EXAMPLE: in the lectures we did not discuss, law, crime, and punishment during the Qing Dynasty (pp. 161-162 of Rhoads Murphey). Nevertheless, the textbook’s explanation of how Confucian concepts made the punishment of disfiguration or dismemberment more shameful could help answer a question on Confucianism in pre- modern China. Look at the number of marks each question is worth and allocate your time accordingly. PART 1: You will be asked to identify/define some terms/names (all the terms/names have been discussed in class or tutorials, are on the Blackboard Lecture Outlines, and/or are in the textbook). You will have a choice of terms/names You should have distinct, separate points for full marks (e.g., what/who is it?; when was it?; why was it?; describe it). Use point form at your own risk—if the marker cannot understand your point form style, or if your answer is too general, you may lose marks. EXAMPLE: if the term/name is ‘Mao Zedong,’ and you answer, “Communist, Long March, Great Leap Forward, Cultural Revolution,” you probably mean, “he was a Communist, he took part in the Long March during which he became the leader of the CCP, he instigated the Great Leap Forward as well as the Cultural Revolution.” However, since you’re expecting the marker to interpret your answer, in effect this means that the marker has answered the question for you. The marker could just as well interpret your answer as, “he was not a Communist, he had nothing
