Playing Identities: Migration, Creaolisation, Creativity
This project aims to interpret migration phenomena as instances of creolisation.
Creolisation is a specific mode of socio-cultural transformation connected with cultural encounter that leads to the construction of a new cultural identity.
By forcing subjects to assume new unpredictable roles in complex social systems, creolisation enables a play of identities in which everybody becomes someone else, becomes the Other, and makes things become something else.
