I am currently delivering a series of live online illustrated talks on the 20th of each month at 20:00 hours UK time. This is based on my PhD research and newly published book Feminist Cartoons & Comics UK: A Critical Survey (Palgrave Macmillan). In each talk I am considering a decade from the 1970s onwards, interpreting how feminism, comics and humour have interacted from a UK perspective. Everyone is welcome. Please join me for the next one on 20 July 2020
TALK #2 Feminism & Comics UK: The 1980s
Live illustrated Zoom talk
20 July 2020 at 20:00 hours UK time
From the anger that infused feminism, comics and humour of the 1970s I argue that in this decade the anger turned inwards. My evidence is the tone of deprecation apparent in the cartooning and humour emerging.
Why was this? What was happening in the UK during this decade? And how did women’s comics engage with and reflect changes in feminism and wider politics? Join me for this illustrated presentation as I offer my interpretations.
