FIFTY SHADES OF HUMOUR IN CHINA

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.
