Chapter 7: Folk and Popular Culture: Diversity and Uniformity

Internet Exercises

1. Pick a sport played in your country and, using the Internet, try to see if there is a spatial distribution of that sport. For example, is bowling equally popular everywhere in the United States? You may not find a direct database, so you'll have to be creative and use associations, schools that play the sport, etc. Think outside of the box to come up with data sources

2. Go to the Online Archive of American Folk Medicine and type in "headache" in the search box. Then browse the cures and treatments that come up. Why do you think groups in the past had the ideas they had?

3. Find a website or two that displays homes for sale in your area. Look at the house types presented. Do they match any of the styles discussed in the text?
