Locating identity within cultural ambivalence: A study of a Creole


Author(s): Manisha Gangahar

Abstract:
In normal circumstances culture becomes a signifier of one’s identity and serves as a tag by which an individual is recognized within society. But a Creole finds himself at the crossroads of culture rather than immersed in any single culture. As a result of the cultural displacement experienced by these people, who do not belong to a particular culture or a single territory, the idea of a ‘unified self’ breaks down and there is an identity crisis. The paper explores how a creole defines his/her identity and locates a sense of belonging withing the frame of cultural ambivalence.
