When Johannes Fabian provided a workable solution for Western anthropology in its struggle to represent the non-Western Other-the Western anthropologist must be vigilantly self-reflexive about his/her practice of Othering and maintain a dialectical notion of cultural difference rather than a relativist or a taxonomist one 7-he was theorizing a two-way interaction unmediated by diasporic and postcolonial intellectuals, who transform the dyadic interaction into a tripartite construct. H The tripartite construct does not merely add an intermediary to the interaction but dramatically reshapes that interaction.
Over the years, Li wrote several essays reflecting critically upon this event. " This is another significant aspect of Li's famous repudiation of Western feminism-it is directed both at Western feminists and diasporic Chinese "feminists" and is differentially articulated against these two targets.

This reductionist thinking effectively withholds from Third World cultural production a potential claim to redefine the universal, on the one hand, and denies it the palpable cosmopolitanism that is always already Westernized thanks to colonialism and neocolonialism, on the other.
