Abstract

This article explores hybrid Hong Kong through empirical representation of the territory's cultural mix and fusion. The research applies the concept of everyday hybridity that seeks to engage with the quotidian aspects of intercultural exchange and multiculturalism. Young Muslims in Hong Kong provide the focus for the enquiry and represent everyday scenarios of hybridity connected to themes of identity, urban space and fasting during Ramadan. Importantly the work challenges ideas of Muslims as a problematic component of multicultural societies and questions how Hong Kong's special status facilitates its hybrid culture.
