Hybridity and Diaspora

John Hutnyk

It is by now established that authors writing on diaspora very often engage with the mixed notion of hybridity. We will see that this term also offers much for debate, and that this debate in turn offers material that elaborates, and may further complicate, the cultures and politics of diaspora. This text explores this uneven terrain and presents a kind of topographical survey of the uses and misuses of hybridity, and its synonyms.
[there then follows a text that is is part of the book "Hybridity and Diaspora" written by Virinder Kalra, Raminder Kaur and John Hutnyk, published by Sage, London, 2005.]
