Read e-book online Against Hybridity: Social Impasses in a Globalizing World PDF

One of many significant features of our modern tradition is a favorable, nearly banal, view of the transgression and disruption of cultural obstacles. Strangers, migrants and nomads are celebrated in our postmodern international of hybrids and cyborgs. yet we pay a cost for this party of hybridity: the non-hybrid figures in our societies are missed, rejected, silenced or exterminated.

Man's lot is that he question; but it is equally his lot that he receive no answer (Richardson 1972).  Who can challenge what we have done?  What once was mating is now marriage, what once were calls are now words, and what once were termite sticks are now atomic bombs.  Culture is our blessing; it is also our curse, our fatal flaw.  What made us human, the ability to label and to act on those labels, guarantees that we fail.  How can a single species do and be so many contradictory things?  Being a human is an impossible task, but it is our task.

I checked out an armful, and panting from both the weight and the heat, I hurried to my office. " I considered the peculiar one that night as I poured Joanna her Chivas Regal and me my drugstore bourbon. "I was curious as to what he might say," Joanna was speaking. " I knew better than to ask.  What of black and white together?  I laid my forehead against the coolness, its coolness, the coolness of it inside, the it that I swore would be. " The fight lasted through the news, through supper, and extended into the bedroom where Joanna's hand shook as she coated her tears with eye shadow.

We shook hands and he left.  By then the sea creatures had taken away his face, and his skull had begun to bleach.  Inside the case, enshrined by the cypress, was my Stegosaurus christianides.  Marie mound because the landowner, a cotton planter, wanted it out of the way. " With that threat to obliterate the past hanging over our heads, we contacted the WPA regional office in Memphis, made what plans we could, and left for the field in the early summer of 1938.
