Choose one of the two topics below for your primary post. Your primary post is due by Wednesday 11:55 PM ET, and your two required replies by Sunday, 11:55 PM ET.
Topic 1. Cultural Diffusion
The concept of cultural diffusion is an important foundation for understanding how the cultural landscape develops. As our book describes, two of the major cultural hearths of early civilization were found in NASWA. What evidence of those cultural hearths do you see today? How far have ideas and technologies from these hearths spread? What new diffusion of ideas do you see today? Are there new cultural hearths for our modern age?
Topic 2. Oil
It’s hard to discuss this region of the world without talking about oil. Pick a country in this region with significant oil reserves and exports. Provide a brief description of the amount of oil this country exports and has in reserves. What difficulties does this country face in extracting and exporting its oil? Also, how has the revenue generated by this oil been used (or misused) by the country you chose? Do you think the oil revenue is being used in a way that will best benefit the country in the future?
