Self-Reflective Essay


In this course, you have been exposed to the history and culture of the non-Western world. Through the examination of other cultures and their past, we often learn much about ourselves. For this essay, I would like you to contemplate this process. Specifically, I would like you to address the following questions:

1) What have you learned in this course?


2) How has this exploration of the non-Western world impacted your own sense of self or identity?


Whenever possible, be specific, especially when making reference to course materials and themes. Your essay should be 1-2 pages in length with 1" margins. This assignment is due in class Monday April 6.
