Who's Laughing Now? : Feminist Perspectives on Humour and Laughter, Paperback / softback Book

Who's Laughing Now? : Feminist Perspectives on Humour and Laughter Paperback / softback

Edited by Anna Frey

Paperback / softback


From dour old women to buzzkills who can't take a joke, the stereotype of the humourless feminist has repeatedly been deployed to derail and delegitimize the women's rights movement.

This collection skips the tired debates that ask whether feminists can be funny - we know the answer to this already - to instead investigate contemporary expressions and functions of humour within international feminist movements and communities.

This interdisciplinary volume showcases critical analyses of cultural texts and events, personal accounts of producing and encountering feminist humour, and creative interruptions that pair laughter with insight.

As a whole, this work seeks to sideline caricatures of the humourless feminist by promoting a vision of a diverse movement vibrant with innovative, generous, threatening, and, ultimately, triumphant laughter.
