Short Answer (2x15 points each = 30 points): In a concise paragraph, answer two the following three questions, referencing course readings and lectures if necessary.

 

    How did the Mexican Muralist movement reinforce the ideals of the Mexican Revolution?  In your answer, discuss at least one prominent artist and the relationship between his/her work and political ideas.

    Many scholars characterize nineteenth-century independence in South America as incomplete and fundamentally conservative.  Why is this the case? How are twentieth century social revolutions connected (or not) to this history?

    How can the Cuban Revolution be understood from the standpoint of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union?  How did this international context influence the direction and ideology of the Cuban state?

 

Essay (50 points): In a well-organized essay, respond directly to the prompt and provide specific evidence from the course readings to support your claims. Make sure that you have an argument, an introduction, and a conclusion.

 

Prompt: In what ways was the national park system in Mexico “revolutionary?”  How did state-led changes in the Mexican landscape include or exclude new social classes? In your answer, use specific examples from Emily Wakild’s book Revolutionary Parks, and make sure to give an overview of Cárdenas’ agrarian policy and the creation of ejidos.
