|Title:||Activism and the power of humour||Contributor(s):||Branagan, Martin (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1735||Abstract:||This paper uses Australian case studies to demonstrate the continued evolution of the use of humour in environmental, peace, and social justice movements. Drawing from literature on the topic and from personal experiences in activist street-theatre over more than 20 years, I discuss the rationale and motivations behind humorous activism, and note audience reaction and impacts on participants. The paper is reliant on non-violence theory, within the multi-disciplinary paradigm of Peace Studies, in which education is closely linked to the non-violence tenet on ‘conversion’.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Communication, 34(1), p. 41-54||Publisher:||University of Queensland, School of English, Media Studies & Art History||Place of Publication:||Brisbane||ISSN:||0811-6202||Field of Research (FOR):||160805 Social Change||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://search.informit.com.au/fullText;dn=200803784;res=APAFT||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 157
