Combining theoretical and empirical pieces, this book explores
the emerging theoretical work seeking to describe hybrid identities
while also illustrating the application of these theories in
empirical research.The sociological perspective of this volume sets
it apart. Hybrid identities continue to be predominant in minority
or immigrant communities, but these are not the only sites of
hybridity in the globalized world. Given a compressed world and a
constrained state, identities for all individuals and collective
selves are becoming more complex. The hybrid identity allows for
the perpetuation of the local, in the context of the global. This
book presents studies of types of hybrid identities: transnational,
double consciousness, gender, diaspora, the third space, and the
internal colony. Contributors include: Keri E. Iyall Smith, Patrick
Gun Cuninghame, Judith R. Blau, Eric S. Brown, Fabienne
