Hybrid Identities


Flocel Sabaté

This book dissiminates a selected collection of research texts from the Congress Hybrid Identities, held in 2011 in the Institute for Research into Identities and Society (University of Lleida, Catalonia, Spain). Outstanding researchers from Social and Humanities fields adapted the hybridization of society such as a new perspective in order to study and understand the evolution of conviviality from the Middle Ages to current days throughout a comparative space and time. Taking the concept from the anthropology, the hybridization became a new approach for social studies and Humanities. Hybridization offers a historical perspective in order to renew perspectives for study different societies during all historical periods since Middle Ages to current days. At the same time, hybridization appears as a tool for analysing social realities in the different continents of the word. In any case, it is a new way in order to understand how the societies reaches its respective cohesions throughout mixted identities.

Histories and Identities



Universitat Pompeu Fabra

The theme of identities is very important for historians, as these are a vital tool we use to understand why men and women act collectively. The first of the problems that we encounter, however, is that each of us lives associated with a whole series of elements that correspond to different networks of identity.

Remember, if you like, the poem by Maria-Mercè Marçal:

A l’atzar agraeixo tres dons: haver nascut dona,De classe baixa i nació oprimida.I el tèrbol atzur de ser tres voltes rebel.
