The creation of an ethnic culture complex region : Pennsylvania Germans in Central Ohio, 1790-1850

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



After an introductory consideration of culture areas, ethnic homelands, ethnic islands, and ethnic substrata, A. discusses the migration of Pennsylvania German from southeastern Pennsylvania to a five-county region of central Ohio in the later 18th and early 19th centuries. This case study is presented in the context of the ongoing ethnic homeland debate-that certain places dominated by an ethnic group have qualities that set them apart from other culture areas. He thinks that central Ohio is an example of a culture complex region, which he puts as between an ethnic homeland and an ethnic island in scale and has distinct characteristics from them. - (SLD)
