The concept of hybridity doesn't resolve any of the problems of the concept of culture but I like his description of vernacular temporal categories, e.g. 'modern' and 'traditional', which leads one to an analysis of plural modernities.

Yet another Latin American counterpoint to relativize "the West." "Modernity" is but a blip on one of the many possible maps of time.

Democratize experience, not just art.

The couple chapters I read weren't too bad, though the chapters assigned weren't in chronological order, so I was occasionally lost. I might pick this up and try reading it again ... though, I have a strong feeling that this won't happen.
La peor edición que leí en mi vida pero el texto es casi temprano y me gusta que sea crudo, good!
