Creolisation started in the Caribbean, and refers to the blending of diverse people and cultures into a unified whole.
Derived from the term 'creole,' which historically referred to individuals born in the New World as opposed to African-born slaves, the concept of creolisation gained prominence during the Second World War. Scholars, including Martinique poet and politician Aimé Césaire, explored the complexities of Caribbean life, addressing cultural identity issues for black Africans within a colonial context.
Creolisation, in this context, can be connected to the concept of Négritude. Presently, the term 'creolisation' is sometimes employed to characterise the cultural intricacies of our contemporary world and the diverse societies that inhabit it.
