Event description
I'm Dr Nicola Streeten and this is part of my series of live illustrated talks about feminism, comics and humour in a UK context

About this Event

Based on my book and my research in a UK context, this third talk in my series will focus on the 1990s.

Following the characteristic self-deprecation of the 1980s, a younger generation of women were emerging to question assumptions of Second Wave feminism. They were also injecting a newer, brasher form of humour which is reflected in the cartoons. The signature was celebratory which I interpret as carnivalesque. I look at where such works were appearing and how they were being produced.

The programme of illustrated talks about Feminism, Comics and Humour will continue on the 20th of each month, with a focus on a different decade each month. This is a series of free educational talks. The production and presentation is not for the purpose of profit. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The talks are being made available on my YouTube Channel: Dr Nicola Streeten, at this link
