Images in print : the Manileña in periodicals (1898-1938)

Abstract : This study hopes to provide the evolving story of the Manileña image through the usage of text and iconography found in print media available in Manila from 1898-1938. Through this process, the narrative of the continuities and changes of the images and representations of the Manileña that were created and portrayed in the periodicals may be seen and understood. This study also seeks to examine the various issues, perspectives and concerns that cropped up due to the changes that occurred. There is a need to understand how media reproduce and socially construct gender. This research hopes to find out the implications of visual culture and its impact on a gendered image in the face of modernity and urbanization. The study will interrogate the intersection of history, gender, media, modernity and urbanization as it plays in the realms of the public sphere, the private sphere and the unnamed realms in between. The study will hopefully add to the understanding of image formation in a colonial context undergoing rapid modernity and urbanization.
