Abstract

Visual Humour in Ideas of Race, Nationality, and Ethnicity is a part of a series that aims to analyse visual culture from a critical perspective and with an interdisciplinary approach. The foundations of the publication were set by Angela Rosenthal and David Bindman in 2007 when they came together for the Humanities Institute at the Leslie Centre for the Humanities at Dartmouth College. Leslie Centre for the Humanities focuses on inclusivity and social engagement in everyday life and cultures. The volume being reviewed here is an end result of this effort and reflects how visual humour has been a means of classifying, stereotyping, positioning and degrading people of different religions, races, nationalities, genders and identities throughout history.
