Since April 2016, Concordia’s working group on Feminism and Controversial Humour has been meeting to talk about humour that addresses race, sexual assault, abortion and disability — operating under the premise that feminists may be particularly well-positioned to understand not only the costs but also the benefits of joking about structural inequities, including their most violent and traumatic manifestations.

The Feminism and Controversial Humour Symposium public talks and panels will include talks by two American feminist humour scholars, Dr Rebecca Krefting and Dr Anca Parvulescu, a Q & A with Emma Cooper, a co-producer of the Rape is Real… and Everywhere stand-up tour.

Please register in advance for the Feminism and Controversial Humour Public Talks. The event is free of charge but space is limited!
