It goes without saying that identity has long been a recurrent topic in studies of American culture. A struggle between group sameness and individual uniqueness is the typical issue when providing a means for developing an understanding of diversity in the United States-including how our differences have not always resulted in national celebration. Terms such as "hybridity," "performativity," "transnationalism," and "border zones" are part of the current theoretical vocabulary and, for some, deploy a fresh language of possibility, one promising to undermine the conformist values of monocultural perspectives. To that end, Culturcide and Non-Identity across American Culture explores theories and practices of non-identity in American culture. In order to see identity as varied, diffused, and distorted, its subjects range from hip-hop parodies to punk preppies to pachuco-ska, thus, crossing the lines of genre, medium, and discipline to blur the borderline dividing the kinds of texts to which these theories can "legitimately" be applied.
