Culture

The process of cultures spreading is called?

Cultural diffusion


Culture

When material (things we leave behind – buildings) and non-material (things we believe) culture spread, the process is called cultural diffusion.

Carl Sauer – cultural landscape

The rate of diffusion is influenced by “distance decay.”

The influence of culture weakens

as distance increases.

Culture moves when people move.

Diffusion occurs by trade, travel, and migration.


Culture

Culture hearths were centers of culture and innovation.


Culture

Culture Region – an area marked by culture that distinguishes it from other regions.

Religious structures are a simple way to determine a cultural region.


Culture

Carl Sauer wrote how cultures diffuse. He also indentified the “cultural landscape.” The imprint we place on the environment.


Culture

As European empires spread around the world, they took their culture with them.

Language

Religion

Architecture

Food

Where are you more likely to find folk cultures today?


Culture

When a migrant group accepts traits of their new country, the process is called:

assimilation

When a culture accepts traits of another culture and includes it into their own, it is called:

acculturation

Migrants tend to hold on to one particular culture trait the longest.


Culture

People who migrate also take their culture with them and maintain these connections to the past.


Culture

Folk culture occurs in isolation. It is generally found in “out of the way” places.

Folk culture has not diffused and has accepted little diffusion.

Folk cultures generally develop from familiar events in daily life.

Where would folk cultures most likely develop?

In multiple hearths.


Culture

Popular or “pop” culture.

Generally develops in MDC’s.

Diffuse rapidly due to modern technology.


Culture

Globalization has made it more difficult for folk cultures to maintain their identity.


Culture

While assimilating, many groups in the attempt to hold on to a part of the folk culture.


Culture

Cultures are always in a state of change. Few folk cultures have escaped the influences of pop culture in the information age.
