About this Unit
This unit looks at the emergence of ‘hybridity’ as a category of cultural and social thought by tracing its historical and philosophical genealogies in a wider global context. It looks at the contested ways in which racial mixing or métissage have been articulated in the Western imagination, from ‘contamination’ to ‘cosmopolitanism’. Through charting the changing meanings of ‘miscegenation’ over time, and in imperial contexts, new insights are offered on the ways in which we might situate current debates on cultural and social identity.
