Abstract:The power of the United States to bring about change in the Philippines during the country's second colonial era (c. 1898--1946) has been overestimated. Most historical narratives thus far have tended to privilege colonialism as the driving force of the archipelago's history, leaving little room for doubt regarding the success and extent of imperial rule. This thesis takes a contrary view, illuminating a few of the places where American imperialism, and indeed the narratives which unproblematically proclaim its success, failed. I first look into An Eagle Flight (1900), an abridged rendition of José Rizal's Noli me tángere (1887), deconstructing not only the ideology it ascribes the quintessential Filipino patriot but also the techniques of translation which sustain it. Next I perform a postcolonial reading of Vic Hurley's Southeast of Zamboanga, demonstrating how the illogics of race, gender and sexuality reveal the fictive character of colonialist discourse. Lastly, I dispel the myth that American might vanquished Islamic freedom fighters in the Philippine South prior to World War II in what was a historic first encounter.
