Up to now, debates on hybridisation are rather theoretical. The authors of
the volume take an empirical look at both everyday cultures and
lifestyles, religion, medicine and scientific cultures and the directions
of influences. The findings suggest that hybridity and hybridising have to
be conceptualised as processes of mixture relevant for constructing
identities, being increasingly positively denoted and displaying the
multidirectionality and multidimensionality of hybridising processes. In
our globalised world such a mixture is very frequent, highly present and
rather inescapable.
