Reading comprehension 

Questions1 through4arebased on the following reading passage, which consists of four paragraphs.

In the 1970’s, two debates engaged many scholarsof early United States history.  One focused on the status of women,primarily White women.  Turning on the so-called golden age theory, whichposited that during the eighteenth-century colonial era, American women enjoyeda brief period of high status relative to their English contemporaries and tonineteenth-century American women, this debate pitted scholars who believedwomen’s lives deteriorated after 1800 against those who thought women’s liveshad been no better before 1800.  At issue were the causes of women’s subordination: were these causes already in place when the English first settled North Americaor did they emerge with the rise of nineteenth-century industrialcapitalism?  The second debate, the so-called origins debate, concernedthe emergence of racial slavery in the southern colonies:  was slavery theinevitable result of the deep-rooted racial prejudice of early Britishcolonists or did racial prejudice arise only after these planters institutedslave labor?

Although these debates are parallel in some respects,key differences distinguished them.  Whereas the debate over women’sstatus revolved around implicit comparisons of colonial women to theircounterparts in the antebellum period (1800-1860), thus inviting comment fromscholars of both historical periods, the origins debate was primarily confinedto a discussion about slavery in colonial America.  Second, in contrast tothe newness of the debate over women’s status and its continued currencythroughout the early 1980’s, the debate over race and slavery, begun in the1950’s, had lost some of its urgency with the publication of Morgan’sAmerican

Slavery, American Freedom (1975),widely regarded as the last word on the subject.

Each debate also assumed a differentrelationship to the groups whose histories it concerned.  In its heyday,the origins debate focused mainly on White attitudes toward Africans ratherthan on Africans themselves.  With few exceptions, such as Wood’sBlack

Majority (1974) and Mullin’sFlight

and Rebellion(1972), which were centrally concerned with enslaved Africanmen, most works pertaining to the origins debate focused on the Whitearchitects, mostly male, of racial slavery.  In contrast, although women’shistorians were interested in the institutions and ideologies contributing towomen’s subordination, they were equally concerned with documenting women’sexperiences.  As in the origins debate, however, early scholarship oncolonial women defined its historical constituency narrowly, women’s historiansfocusing mainly on affluent White women.

Over time, however, some initial differencesbetween the approaches taken by scholars in the two fields faded.  In the1980’s, historians of race and slavery in colonial America shifted theirattention to enslaved people; interest in African American culture grew,thereby bringing enslaved women more prominently into view.  Historians ofearly American women moved in similar directions during the decade and began toconsider the effect of racial difference on women’s experience.

E.  contrast the kind of work produced by scholarsengaged in the origins debate with the kind produced by scholars engaged in thedebate over American women’s status

A.    gave more attention to the experiences ofenslaved women
