Conference Cultural Identities in a Global World: Reframing Cultural Hybridity

Giessen University, GCSC (Online)

June 23-25, 2021

From the local to the global, cultural hybridity nowadays travels across the individual, political, religious, biological, cultural, and virtual spaces in the historical contexts of the nation-state, transnationalism and globalisation. Hence, hybridity can entangle new meanings and action-oriented concepts. This conference aims to reframe the discourse on hybridity by exploring this cultural artefact in theory and social practice and as a still useful analytical tool in the study of culture.
