Creolizing Europe

Stuart Hall

Liverpool University Press

Stuart Hall engages with ‘Créolité and Creolization’ sets out the theoretical orientation that guides this volume in his challenge to us to seek out creolization’s applicability outside of the Caribbean as he takes up Glissant’s claim that ‘the whole world is becoming creolized’ and looks at its meanings and implications. Hall interrogates whether or not créolité can be applied to all processes of cultural mixing or if it is tied to the French Antilles and asks if it can be a genuine alternative to hegemonic post-colonial and post-imperial understandings. He also asks whether créolité and creolization refer to the same phenomenon and whether or not creolization should replace other terms such as hybridity, métissage and syncretism as he seeks out creolization’s general conceptual applicability.
