中文摘要

Considering Formosa to be an emerging site for the encounters between the East and the West since the latter half of the nineteenth century, where imperialism has started to exert its subtle influence in many places, this paper wants to examine representations from George Leslie MacKay, a Canadian Presbyterian priest who carried on missionary work in Northern Formosa for thirty years, and from contemporary British pictorial news that conveyed to its reader the most updated and vivid impression of this Oriental island and its inhabitants that he or she might have known only by name. This paper would thus focus on the imperial gaze derived from these representations of Formosa, which are also “ethno-graphic” in the sense that they represent Formosa and its people in a form typical of nineteenth-century ethnographies accompanied by photos or pictures which were the results of field studies by ethnologists.
