Cultural Diffusion - Mrs. Brooks

Cultural Diffusion What is Cultural Diffusion? Spread of ideas, styles, religions, technologies, foods, and languages within a single culture or throughout different cultures

There are 4 main types of cultural diffusion 1. Expansion Diffusion Expansion Diffusion: Idea that develops in an area and

remains strong there while also spreading to other areas (McDonalds) 2. Relocation Diffusion Relocation Diffusion: Idea that develops in an area but moves to different places, leaving behind its origin

(Indians removed from their land and relocated) 3. Hierarchical Diffusion Hierarchical Diffusion: Idea that moves from larger to smaller places without regard to the distance between places (Missionaries who try

to convert for sake of religion) 4. Contagious Diffusion Contagious Diffusion: Idea based on person to person contact within a given population (When Christians spread Christianity in the early 1st century through word

of mouth.) Brainstorm- How Can This Happen? Technology- computers, telephone, internet, etc. Communication-

language, technology, cultural practices and customs Transportation- planes, trains, cars, ships, etc. to transport goods and ideas
