Rethinking questions of identity, social agency and national affiliation, Bhabha provides a working, if controversial, theory of cultural hybridity - one that goes far beyond previous attempts by others. For Bhabha, this process is entrenched in the theory of the metonymy of presence. This, in a sense, is another form of mimicry, as the written word was seen as an integral tool in asserting the authority and legitimacy of colonial rule.

This, in a sense, is another form of mimicry, as the written word was seen as an integral tool in asserting the authority and legitimacy of colonial rule. However, what the writing of Derrida also suggests for Bhabha is the potential space for the misappropriation and misreading of colonial texts.
Thus, our understanding of colonial discourse is predicated upon the legitimacy of 61 Jacques Derrida, Barbara Johnson transl. For it is this disavowal between the signification and signifier of colonial discourse, this doubling of inscribed space between the articulation of cultural difference on the behalf of the coloniser that creates an ambivalent space.
May we not consider this Great I as an unintended proof of how much an Englishman thinks of his own consequence? Bhabha supports these ideas with reference to correspondence made from the Church Missionary Society which settled in India in the early nineteenth-century.
For Bhabha, the ability to inverse the colonial control held through writing and language is inextricably connected with the hybrid mimic. It is this ability for the marginal to find agency and control through the very institutions and means that oppressed them, to mimic these very functions, that allows the hybrid to become a form of colonial resistance.
Furthermore, Bhabha claims that the hybrid space is in itself dependent on specific contextual conditions, a contradiction to his generalised and universal application of the concept itself.
