What does cultural region mean?

Post by Hazel12 » Sat Oct 26, 2019 8:57 am

In anthropology and geography, a cultural region or cultural sphere refers to the aspects of culture associated with an ethnolinguistic group and the territory it inhabits. Specific cultures often do not limit their geographic coverage to the borders of a nation-state, or to smaller subdivisions of a state.

Hi Hazel. It sounds like you are trying to start a conversation here but we don't know you. Could you stop over at the Greeters Station, say hello and let us know who you are?

There is no reason for culture to be limited to a region, as communications and transportation improve cultural influences are easily felt across cultural barriers. Culture belongs to a group not to individuals. As groups diffuse their opinions and actions are felt more widely.
