Fifty Shades of Humour in China
Tuesday, 5 February 2019, 6:30 – 8pm
A lecture by Dr Heidi Wang-Kaeding (TCD) organised by the Trinity Centre for Asian Studies as part of the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival.
Join Dr Heidi Wang-Kaeding as she maps out how humour plays a part in Chinese day-to-day life. As an indispensable component of our life, humour provides a cognitive shortcut in our understanding of social issues, as well as how we perceive ‘the other’. This talk will showcase examples from state-sponsored skits in the Chinese Spring Festival Gala to memes created by netizens.
