6. Description Abstract This chapter looks at academic discourses on hybridity and
creolization in the context of Caribbean religious traditions. A
major emphasis in these discourses is the perceived strategic
and subversive patterning of hybrid belief systems by slaves
in the Caribbean under Christian colonial rule. Using the text
Creole Religions of the Caribbean: An Introduction from Vodou
and Santería to Obeah and Espiritismo, by Margarite Fernández
Olmos and Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, as a point of departure,
I argue for scholarly consideration of the implications of
the articulated impulses of projects like this, projects that are
prevalent in academic discussions of identity and migration
within African diasporas.
