Abstract:
This thesis examines the relationship between print culture and American imperial endeavors in the Philippines. Specifically, it investigates articles in daily newspapers – the saliency of the American newspaper created a way for the public to encounter the Filipino native through representations formed by colonial actors and observers. The thesis’ individual chapters explore three distinct contexts in which discourses of an emerging imperial-racial framework were translated into the narratives of reportage. The degree to which the medium of the newspaper can replicate ideas, sounds and images created a shared experience and produced widespread stereotypes. Ultimately, these accounts surveyed shaped American expectations and attitudes about the Filipino identity.
