Hale Current Lecture Cultural Appropriation  Refers to one group adopting elements of the culture of another group  When the group that is doing the adopting is subordinate, this is often referred to as acculturation or assimilation.  When the group that is doing the adopting is dominant, the adopters are sometimes referred to disparagingly as “wannabes” or “culture vultures” o EX) Young hipsters begin to adopt bowling. Conflict/tensions arises between league bowlers and hipster bowlers.  All of this raises questions that have no easy answers: o How do we define who belongs to what group? o Is culture a possession that groups have rights to?
