Global Villages Course I

Sign up to take the Global Villages Course I, which introduces students to Global Villages, also known as dominant culture regions. The Global Villages courses on this site are both historical and cultural in content because it is difficult to discuss one without the other.  Geographic location is also an undeniable impact upon culture and cultural adaptations.  Therefore, Cultural Geography, today, divides the world’s land masses into eleven (11) separate and dominant culture regions.

This website refers to each of those eleven (11) culture region as “Global Villages,” because our globalized world is both connected and interdependent, as neighboring villages have always been.

In reality, there are thousands of culture regions across the globe.  However, due to colonialism, tribal conflicts, wars, ethnic cleansing, regional disasters, and mass immigrations over time, nearly every region has changed in cultural make up from its humble beginnings.  Below are the four Global Villages studied in Part I.
