Cultural hybrids: the nomads of modern society

Cultural hybrids are people who lived in- and experienced several different cultures. Unlike a ‘normal’ person, their identity is constructed as a combination of these different cultural backgrounds. With that, their existance drastically challenges mainstream culture, in that they are able to see issues in a much more balanced, and culturally relativist way. They do not just assume that their values are applicable in the whole world, like most do, but instead they see values in a culturally dependent context.
