explain Does global identity exist?

The exam is worth 25 points. Like the previous exam, it is two parts. Part I is worth 15 points, Part II is worth 10 points. There is no separate writing grade in this exam, your ability to write in clear, grammatically correct English that contains a minimum of spelling and other proofreading errors will be evaluated as part of your overall responses in each part of the exam.

The material covered directly in this exam includes the following: What is the What, First Darling of the Morning, Every Day is for the Thief, and The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

Eggers, Dave. What is the What? (2007)
Umrigar, Thrifty. First Darling of the Morning (2008).
Cole, Teju. Every Day is for the Thief. (2015).
Hamid, Mohsin. The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2007)

You are also responsible for being familiar with other texts assigned since March 8 and with the ideas and concepts introduced and discussed in class, some of which should prove useful as you complete your exam. You may always use ideas and material from earlier parts of the course in your essays (although you are not required to do so).
The entire exam must be uploaded in single WORD or PDF file. It should be no more than 8-10 pages, approximately 2000-2500 words. Since Part I is worth more points than part II, you should allocate your attention (and pages) accordingly.

Part I Worth 15 points. There is no choice in Part 1Using evidence and specific examples** from at least 3 of the 4 books listed above, discuss how the 3 models of cultural interaction we talked about in class (clash of civilizations, assimilation, hybridity) shape the search for a global identity. Decide (and make an argument for your decision) which model dominates and why.

Part II Worth 10 points. Choose one of the following and respond using evidence and specific examples from the readings and class.
Does global identity exist? How would you define it?
Explore and explain the reason for the differences between the novel and the movie, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. (If you answer this question, you may not use TRF as one of your 3 texts in Part I).
How has globalization complicated local and global identity?
Pick one of the texts listed above. Explain the significance of the books title both for the story being told and for the larger discussion of global identity. (whatever book you choose to discuss here may not be one of your 3 texts in Part 1)
