Secularization is a cultural-geographic process. Secularism diffuses (spreads) along with popular culture, urbanization, and dependence on science and technology.

Two questions to answer in your discussion board response:

  • How do you think these traits are linked to secularization? (pop culture, urbanization, science/tech) Provide specific examples.
  • Would you expect the diffusion of secularization a matter of contagious diffusion, hierarchical diffusion, stimulus diffusion, relocation diffusion…? Explain why.

You must post a response before you will be able to see the responses of other students.

To receive full participation credit: you must also post comments (2-3 sentences minimum) on at least (2) other classmates’ posts. These comments should do more than just agree or disagree, but attempt to push to conversation further or offer your own analysis. The quality of your responses will be noted when assigning participation credit.
