Mainly Relationship between history and ideology

Relationships we have encountered over the semester, but especially since assignment of the midterm, between history and what we have been calling ideology. Furthermore, connect the concept and practice of ideology with or to what characters in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four refer to as “doublethink and “doublespeak.” One might, for example, take into account the relationship between the blindfolded woman carrying a torch in a painting by Mr. Kurtz in The Heart of Darknness on the one hand, and the realities of what Europeans were doing in the Congo and why on the other. By this, one might mean “the horror” perpetrated there in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by agents of King Leopold of Belgium’s company, but one might also take into account the “cultural treasures” and “documents of civilization” that resulted. One might include a discussion of our “cultural treasures” and “documents of civilization” in 2019, taking into account their origins.
