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 2000s.

By the start of this new century the comic is starting to be repositioned, for example as “graphic novel”. The consequence is the creation of a professional space for the feminist cartoonist. Often autobiographical and based on experiences of trauma and/or identity the humour is evident and I draw on relief theories in my interpretation of my case studies. Questions I ask include how terms such as the collective and protest have been reconfigured within the UK during this decade and what are the implications for the future of cartooning, feminism and humour.

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
