Feminism, Comics & Humour UK
Monday 20 July, 2020
The third in my series of live illustrated talks will focus on The 1980s.
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.
