Overall aims and purpose

Yn ystod y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg fe ledaenodd ymerodraethau Prydain a Ffrainc (a gwledydd eraill Ewrop) ar draws y byd. Erbyn dechrau’r Rhyfel Mawr roedd y rhan fwyaf o wledydd y byd yn rhan o ymerodraeth Ewropeaidd. I drigolion y gwledydd a feddai ar ymerodraeth (ac yn bennaf Prydain a Ffrainc) roedd mawredd eu hymerodraeth yn achos balchder, ac yn rhan bwysig o’u hunaniaeth. Fodd bynnag, yn ail hanner yr ugeinfed ganrif fe ddatgymalwyd yr ymerodraethau mawr Ewropeaidd, gyda chanlyniadau pellgyrhaeddol ar gyfer cymdeithas a diwylliant ym Mhrydain a Ffrainc.

Bydd y modiwl hwn yn archwilio effeithiau oes yr ymerodraethau ar gymdeithas a diwylliant yn Ffrainc a Phrydain (ac yng Nghymru yn benodol). Byddwn yn ystyried sut dreiddiodd syniadau ymerodraethol trwy gydol diwylliant y gwledydd hyn, gan edrych er enghraifft ar sut oedd pobloedd ‘eraill’ yn cael eu portreadu mewn cyhoeddiadau Cymraeg, Saesneg a Ffrangeg. Yna byddwn yn archwilio’r cyfnod wedi’i Ail Ryfel Byd pan chwalwyd yr ymerodraethau, er bod rhai o’r syniadau a ddaeth yn eu sgil yn parhau.

Bydd y modiwl yn cael ei gynnig drwy fideo o Abertawe.

Course content

Yn y modiwl hwn, bydd myfyrwyr yn astudio effaith imperialaeth ar ddiwylliant a chymdeithas Ffrainc a Phrydain, gan ganolbwyntio hefyd ar effaith ymerodraeth ar Gymru. Byddwn yn astudio sawl pwnc, gan gynnwys y berthynas rhwng gwladychu a choloneiddio; cymunedau Cymraeg ar draws yr Ymerodraeth Brydeinig, perthnasau rhwng Ffrainc imperialaidd a’r trefedigaethau, portreadu’r ‘ymerodraeth’, dadwladychu, cofio’r ymderodraeth ac hunaniaeth ôl-wladychol.

Assessment Criteria

threshold

D- to D+: Er mwyn ennill credyd dylai’r myfyrwyr ddangos dealltwriaeth a gwybodaeth sylfaenol o hanes imperialaeth Brydeinig a Ffrengig. Fe ddylent allu adnabod y prif wahaniaethau rhwng datblygiad imperialaeth Brydeinig a’r imperialaeth gyfatebol Ffrengig.

good

C- - B+: Er mwyn ennill graddau uwch yn y modiwl hwn, disgwylir i’r myfyrwyr ymateb yn feirniadol i gwestiynau sy’n cael eu gofyn am dwf a chwymp yr ymerodraethau Ffrengig a Phrydeinig. Bydd yna ymwybyddiaeth gref o gyd-destun hanesyddol. Byddant yn gallu ymateb i gwestiynau traethawd / cyflwyniad mewn modd argyhoeddiadol.

excellent

A- - A*: Er mwyn ennill y graddau uchaf disgwylir i’r myfyrwyr gynnig dehongliadau gwreiddiol o’r ffeithiau hanesyddol, cymharu â chyferbynnu profiad Prydain a Ffrainc o imperialaeth. Byddent yn gallu dangos eu bod nhw’n ystyried ac yn cyfeirio at waith a dadleuon haneswyr sefydledig, ond eu bod nhw’n gallu cymryd rhan mewn dadleuaeth. Disgwylir hefyd iddynt drafod iaith, arddull a syniadau’r testunau mewn modd treiddgar ac arloesol.

Learning outcomes

  1. Deall perthnasedd digwyddiadau hanesyddol penodol i gymdeithas Ffrengig a Phrydeinig.

  2. Asesu dogfennau hanesyddol gwahanol a’u defnyddio mewn modd gwrthrychol a beirniadol er mwyn asesu ffactorau pwysicaf cyfnod imperialaidd y 19eg ganrif.

  3. Datblygu ac ymestyn eu sgiliau dadansoddol a beirniadol trwy ddefnyddio cyfryngau diwylliannol gwahanol: ffilm, rhaglenni ffeithiol, hunangofiannau a delweddau gweledol.

  4. Datblygu eu gallu i gasglu gwybodaeth o ffynonellau amrywiol, ac i leoli ac ystyried y gwybodaeth hynny o fewn cyd-destun gwleidyddol, hanesyddol a chymdeithasol.
