Dangerous Liaisons studies the narrative of the nation as inscribed in the novels written by Philippine women and published from 1993-2006. Given the traditional inscription of women in the discourse of nation, the study looks at how women are discursively deployed in the name of the nation and the nation-state. The study, thus, explores specific issues borne out of the interlocking masculinist discourses on the nation and on women/women’s body/gender. In exploring these issues, the analysis of the novels show that in gendering the nation as woman (i.e., in using the traditional masculinist woman-as-nation trope), the novels critique the contradictions in the discourse of the Philippine nation.
