This paper analyzes the association between recontextualization and hybridism in curriculum policy research based on Stephen Ball. The concept of recontextualization, formulated by Basil Bernstein in a structuralist framework, is associated to Ball´s approach to hybrid cultures, marked by postcolonial and post-structuralist discussions. Questioning the binary marks and the ones made vertical in the recontextualization movement, as well as the celebration of hybridism as a means to overcome postcolonial oppression, this paper argues that it is possible to associate these concepts.
