Abstract

In this chapter, we first analyze how four U.S. regions (West, Northeast, Midwest, South) each produces their own culture cycle, and we then consider how place intersects with both race and class (Latinos in the Southwest, Asians in the Pacific region, Blacks in industrial northern cities, and rural Appalachians). We organize each analysis around a geographic unit and its associated historically shaped ideas and values, a set of products and practices that residents of that place create and come into frequent contact with (e.g., promotional material for universities, websites, personal ads), and residents’ psychological tendencies related to self and well-being
