In the weak sense and since there have always been plunderings, borrowings and intertextuality, the task of the critic seems to be confined to the accumulation of evidence of new hybrids.

In the United States, hybridity is often a staging of the exotic in order to display a pluralistic happy family, although, as everyone knows, the space between the ghetto and the melting pot is occupied only by baseball stars, media personalities and best-selling authors. Not only are indigenous groups made to seem ‘the axis of national culture’ but they are also represented as traditional. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a photograph of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

The display of religious objects is monumental in contrast to the miniaturization of the reproduction of a market hibgidas that is just behind the Sun Stone. While there is nothing particularly startling in this observation, gendering is surely significant in this representation since it is the family that can best demonstrate the official view of the unchanging continuity of private life cutluras the remote past and the present. But hiridas is only the latter that undo the power of the centre.

What does a television producer or a market researcher understand by the popular? Thus for instance Bal’s semiotic study points out that the nineteenth century statue of Queen Maya giving birth to the Buddha from her side, marks a transition between the exhibition of animals to that of foreign humans.


Culturas hibridas – Nestor Garcia Canclini. Entrada. by marvin code on Prezi

Francis Barkeretal Colchester, Essex, vol. As many critics have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, was shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups. How does one study the millions of indigenous people and peasants who migrate to major cities or the workers who are incorporated into the industrial organization of work and consumption?

This representation of the national patrimony over-looks the hybrid forms assumed by traditional ethnic groups when they come into contact with capitalist socioeconomic and cultural development’. The omission of problems of subjectivity and enunciation limit the interdisciplinary potential of this book. What then is the stake in ‘hybridity’? Let me simply quote the sentence that concludes hibridzs discussion of this statue: This is evident from a photograph of the interior of the ethnology room of the Museum which shows a group of life-size figures representing an indigenous family When one looks at this photograph, it is precisely the difference between Canclnii and women that is on display, the public sanctification of formally private life which feminists have made cultursa matter of public debate, emphasizing that abortion is not only a ‘woman’s question’.

I cannot go into the details of her hibrldas. How do we reconcile different disciplinary approaches to the question?

His Culturas populares en el capitalismo was a real breakthrough in that it described artisan production and fiestas not as survivals or degenerate remnants of a once authentic culture but as immensely variable relations to the market, to national culture and to local history. On the second floor the Museum offers scenes of contemporary life, represented almost entirely by life size models of indigenous groups or photographs of the indigenous.

How do we study modernity? Introducing gender into a discussion of the national patrimony might also have led to the question of how male and female have been significantly recoded by the media and private enterprise. This vocabulary has the advantage of demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity.


Clearly the imperial thrust of the Natural History Museum is not to be equated with the national narrative of the Anthropological Museum although the articulation of gender in the narrative is equally important. In Latin America, the staging of difference is perfectly compatible with integration into the global system.

Hence the significance of a question posed by Nelly Richard: But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private. For further discussion of monumentalism, see Susan Stewart: Jean Franco Publicado en: The trouble with the old term mestizaje was that it suggested that culture sprang naturally out of copulation. One of the women, dressed in a huipil and a long skirt, kneels in the foreground, apparently tending an open fire.

Hybridity is a botanical metaphor closely linked therefore to the notion of culture as cultivation, but it has some of the same problems as mestizaje. In its weaker sense, it might simply refer to the postmodern permission to use all repertoires without worrying about authenticity. By gender I do not mean women or making space for women. Hinridas me mention one example of an analysis into which gender might have appropriately been introduced.

The very idea of ‘modernity 7 expressed in the title seems awkward. Finally the big question: Beside her are two baskets filled with what looks like the leaves used for making tamales the details of the photograph are not clear.

How do we analyse culturaw phenomena that are not covered by traditional categories of high or popular culture?
