Chapter Summary

The sociological analysis of hybridity investigates the range of types of hybrid identities that are explored theoretically and empirically in the literature on identity. Multiple forms of hybridity are analyzed: identities that exist across borders, duality, gender (a false dichotomy), new identities, the diaspora (borderless), and the internal colony hybrid (formed within boundaries). This chapter will survey developments in the study of boundaries and boundary crossing in a breadth of contexts. Alternatively, it is also possible to interrogate the categories of man and woman by looking at gender hybridity. Roderick Bush focuses on the structural aspects of colonialism in his critical analysis of internal colonialism and hybrid identities, looking at how this positioning might allow them to become change agents within their societies.

Keywords: change agents; colonialism; diaspora; gender; Hybridity; idendity; sociological
