Hybridity refers in its most basic sense to mix. Hybridity is thus the possession or occurrence of mixture. Hybridisation is understood as the process by which hybridity occurs and a hybrid is formed. The term originates from biology and was subsequently employed in linguistics and in racial theory in the nineteenth century. Its contemporary uses are scattered across numerous academic disciplines and is salient in popular culture. This article explains the history of hybridity and its major theoretical discussion amongst the discourses of race, post-colonialism, Identity (social science), anti-racism & multiculturalism, and globalization. This article illustrates the development of hybridity rhetoric from biological to cultural discussions.
