oS98 Cultural imperialism does not seem to explain the spread of Western music, fashion, food, and technology for 3 reasons: o It denies agency to nonWestern peoples who make use of Western cultural forms o It assumes that nonWestern cultural forms never move from the rest to the West ex: anamay from Japan o It ignores the fact that cultural form sand practices sometimes move from one part of the nonWestern world to other parts of the non Western world, bypassing the West entirely we are not always the center Global flows are uneven (not smooth) Global flows vs. globehopping Cultural Hybridization and Cosmopolitanism: Hybridity: cultural mixing Ex: immigration policies in North America to encourage Sikh men to marry Mexican women (cultural mixing) Not such thing as a pure culture mixing cultures is always tainted Cosmopolitanism: being at ease in more than one cultural setting Ex: travel without feeling culture shock, not at ease, etc
