Additional Information: This paper was originally presented to an interdisciplinary conference in Forlì, Italy. It argues that there are two models of `mixity¿ (mestizaje, meticciato, métissage etc). One is a vertical model which emerged from within a colonial context and referred to cultural and linguistic change through `contact¿ between sections of a `native¿ (i.e. indigenous) population who adopted and adapted elements of the dominant (colonial) language and culture. The other is a `horizontal¿ model which describes the kind of cultural change experienced in contemporary cities of Europe. Data from studies of young people in ethnic minority populations help us explore this difference.
