Abstract

In this thesis, Said's and Bhabha's concepts are applied to its analysis of Japanese colonial discourses on the Pacific. Japanese Orientalism vis-à-vis the Pacific is an important concept here called 'Nanyo-Orientalism'. Both Japanese colonialists' construction of a Pacific Island Other and their anxiety towards, as well as their fantastic dreams of, Japan's Pacific Island colonies will be highlighted in my discussion.
