In the first hour, Dieter Declercq, a PhD student from the School of Arts, will be presenting his work on comedy satire, giving a talk titled ‘Satire as therapy. Cruel to be kind? Comedy to cope?’ An abstract of Dieter’s talk is below:


Dieter’s talk will be followed by a Q + A session. We will have a short break around 1pm and in the second hour we will have a discussion about possible collaborations between those in Humanities and Social Sciences. There will also be an opportunity for members during this time to raise questions or discuss issues related to their own work, so please do come along with anything that you would find useful to discuss with the group.
