A Satire of Two Nations
Helen Yu-Rivera's 'A Satire of Two Nations: Exploring Images of the Japanese in Philippine Political Cartoons' utilizes visual satire as a primary tool for discourse analysis, charting the shifting dimensions of Philippines-Japan relations as depicted in Philippine editorial cartoons from 1986-1998. It reveals the socio-historical forces that affected the dynamics of the relationship between the two countries. Examining changes in cartooning conventions and editorial policies, it also teases out the Filipino's constructed images of the Japanese.
