    Actually, I think Pieterse does recognize that cultural imperialism is still possible. He also acknowledges that some hybrid forms are not the result of equal exchange, but the product of unequal power relations and some coercion.

    However, the structure of cultures can empower those with less power within a culture to express a hybrid identity. In this case people on the cultural boundaries can reshape their identities more freely than what the core would allow otherwise.

    Great application of Pieterse’s work. He is an important scholar in this field.
