The Age of High Imperialism Questions: o How did Europeans rationalize the Age of High Imperialism? Europeans rationalized their activities across the globe in ideological, religious, and economic terms. o How did European cultures interact with cultures around the world? Europeans shaped their colonial environment to reflect their European cultures. The design of cities, the ways they scheduled their days, and the activities they enjoyed in the colonies resembled those of Europeans at home. In the process, their colonies shaped European culture as well (i.e. food, language, and artistic styles).
