Postcolonial spaces and identities
In this, the second of two articles on postcolonialism, I continue to explore of what use a basic understanding of postcolonialism is for geography students. Specifically, I outline the processes of cultural mixing that resulted from the networked spatialities produced by colonialism and imperialism; what postcolonial theorists have referred to as hybridity. Though not without its problems, hybridity has become a key tool for understanding the formation of postcolonial spaces and identities. I use examples from both the UK and abroad to exemplify and critically engage postcolonial hybridity.
