  • Culture is the man-made part of the environment. (It is learned & passed on)
  • Cultural trait is a single attribute of a culture such as chopsticks.
  • Cultural region is a portion of the earth occupied by people who share cultural traits such as religions, languages, political organizations, etc.
  • Cultural realm-is a large segment of the earth with uniformity in cultural characteristics such as “Latin America”
Acculturation-immigrant populations take on enough of the values, attitudes and customs of the receiving society to function economically and socially.
  • Assimilation-the complete blending with the host culture and the loss of most if not all of a groups previous distinctive ethnic traits.
  • Syncretism-the process of fusing the immigrant culture with the native or adjacent culture. E.g. Haitian mix of Catholic and African voodoo religious practices, Tex-Mex cuisine in the Southwest.
  • Cultural convergence-the sharing of technologies, cultural traits and artifacts among widely separated societies.
Cultural perceptions-like perceptual regions, there are many intangible elements that define a region’s personality.
  • Consider the South as a Cultural Region;
    • Houses with porches
    • Foods like grits, greens and cornbread.
    • Drawl or dialects like Cajun.

cultural diffusion
Cultural Diffusion
  • Cultural diffusion or spatial diffusion is the spread of an idea or innovation from its source to other cultures.
  • Diffusion occurs through the movement of people, goods or ideas.
  • Carl Sauer focused on cultural diffusion in his book Agricultural Origins and Dispersals (1952)
types of diffusion
Types of Diffusion
  • There are two main types of Diffusion:
  • Expansion Diffusion
    • The spread of an item or idea from one place to others. In the process it remains and often strengthens in the origin area.
      • Contagious diffusion-rapid widespread diffusion by direct contact. Affects all areas uniformly as it spreads outward. E.g. the spread of Islam.
      • Hierarchical diffusion-or cascade diffusion-the process of spreading ideas first between large cities and only later to smaller cities.
      • Stimulus diffusion-the spread of an underlying principle even though the main idea is not spread. E.g. industrialization
  • Relocation Diffusion
    • The innovation or idea is physically carried to new areas by migrating individuals or populations. E.g. Christianity brought to the New World by missionaries and colonists.
  • Expansion diffusion has a snowball effect-it gains momentum as it moves. It is happening much more rapidly today due to the technology of fax machines, computers, the internet, satellite links for TV, telephone, etc.
  • Another example of contagious diffusion-spread of soccer as a college sport-Eastern ivy-league schools first.
  • Hierarchical diffusion is also known as cascade diffusion-ideas spread from nodes of power or authority to other nodes of power-AIDS, Christianity, Hip-hop music, rap and the use of the fax machine are all examples of Hierarchical diffusion.
  • The early 19th century Cholera outbreak in the US was an example of relocation diffusion and hierarchical diffusion-it spread from city to nearby city via water transportation-it spread slowly until the railroad network spread it much more rapidly via relocation diffusion.


Contagious Diffusion


Hierarchical Diffusion

Factors that delay diffusion:
    • Time-distance decay-the farther way and the longer it takes to reach an area, the less likely it will be adopted.
    • Cultural barriers may pose obstacles to cultural diffusion-taboos or religious beliefs.
    • Cultural lag-when a social group is economically or psychologically unresponsive to change.
