Peter Burke's Cultural Hybridity provides reassurance for those who understand we are living in a world of intense cultural changes and encounters, but seem to remember having read that such intermixing and encounters have actually occurred throughout human history and are not just a function of the last 30 years. While we once saw Hellenization, Romanization, Hispanicization, Anglicization, and Americanization as cultures of victorious and dominant homogenizers, we now recognise the heterogeneity implicit in these cultural processes and the vitality and fusibility of those who we once thought to be submerged by them.
