Ethnizität, Differenz und Hybridität in der Migration
Eine postkoloniale Perspektive
Schlagworte:Ethnizität, Differenz, Migration, Postkolonialität
German society, nowadays, is marked by postcolonial immigration. This article tries to reconstruct ethnicity as historically based cultural identity that is not only open to the narration of collective experiences, but also to the recognition of difference, ambivalence, and change. These terms are also key-concepts in the post-colonial discourse of Anglo-American Cultural Studies, when culture and identity are discussed. Without the security of essentialist guarantee, but with the notion of ethnicity, that is devoted to different voices, the post-colonial critique tries to conceive of a political strategy, where marginalization is revalorised and the hybrid culture of the „borderlands” is promoted.
