For each gobbet response you will need to write a 500-word essay that is supported by evidence from both within the source itself and secondary materials. All this supporting evidence needs to be referenced.
First, you must start with a close reading of the primary source. For each source you read, you should ask the following questions, and if you do not know the information, you should conduct independent research to ensure that you do.
Who wrote the source and what do we know about them?
When was it written?
What is the historical context (e.g. events that were taking place when it was created)?
Why was it created?
Who was the intended audience?
What point of view does it represent?
How does this point of view shape the source?
Gathering this information will provide you with an excellent foundation on which to build your analytical answer, which is the part of the assignment that will help you achieve the highest grades. For this aspect, you should consider the following questions. You should use one of these general questions to help frame your answer. Good grades will be heavily based on the strength of your ‘interpretative framework’.
Is it characteristic of the work of a particular author or movement?
Does it reflect a broader change in society/politics/culture?
Does the document relate to another specific historical movement or event?
How has the source been assessed by historians/scholars?
For each gobbet response assignment, I will provide a specific example of these frameworks which you could use. There are, however, no fixed rules or procedures about how your written gobbets should be tackled, and if you have a particular area of interest that you would like to pursue, I encourage you to do so. You can, of course, contact me for help or clarification of any ideas you have.
For this assignment, read all of the assigned primary sources and select one for your gobbet response. The primary sources this week are:
Gandhi to Lord Irwin, On Independence (1930)  Click for more options
All-India Muslim League Council, On Partition of India (1946)  Click for more options
Bevin to Attlee, On Indian Independence (1947)  Click for more options
Nehru, Speech On the Granting of Indian Independence (1947)  Click for more options
Suggestions for specific ‘interpretative frameworks’ include:
Context for each of the documents e.g. who wrote them and what events informed the content? e.g. Colonial nationalists Gandhi, Jinnah, Nehru or British officials Ernest Bevin and Clement Attlee.
Do the documents individually, or collectively, help explain the end of British rule in India? Or explain the eventual partition?
What methods of resistance to colonial rule can be found in the primary sources?
Do the documents present similar or different perspectives on the issue of decolonization and partition?
Remember, these are just suggestions. They all require specific reading and specific evidence to support your argument. The clearer you make your argument, from the very outset of your paper, the more likely you will be able to achieve high grades.
