Scope note

  • Cultural hybridity is a form of cultural change and creativity that challenges fixed or essentialist accounts of identity by incorporating the crossing of racial and cultural boundaries. Cultural hybridity is not merely fusing existing cultural elements. Rather, hybridity refers to the process of the emergence of a culture, in which its elements are being continually transformed or translated through irrepressible encounters.
