The upcoming HUMOROUS > DISRUPTIONS colloquium is dedicated to the polyvalent ways in which humour has functioned as a disruptive technology in feminist media theories and practices. Humour and its many manifestations—parody, satire, irony, and mimicry—have the potential to destabilize existing systems of representation, media production, and gender constructions. Humour can be used to forge new circuits of knowledge, as well as political and emotional solidarities.
This 2-day colloquium will take place on October 16th & 17th and it will feature paper presentations, two roundtables of invited speakers, and a curated interactive art, games, and media exhibition.
All colloquium events will be held in the EV Building, on Concordia University’s downtown campus in Montreal, Canada. The media exhibition is open to all colloquium attendees, as well as the public. During the event, wine and light refreshments will be served.
