Check out my new article on political humour in media entertainment!

My newest article on political humour in media entertainment has just been published in a very rich and interesting volume on “Political Entertainment – Entertaining Politics”, edited by Marco Dohle and Gerhard Vowe, in the German Halem-Verlag.

My contribution consists of a systematic overview of previous research on political humour in media entertainment by distinguishing six different types: – critical humour, humour for everyone, humour narratives, humour as pr, guerilla humour and humour among friends. For each of these types, the articles discusses our current knowledge on its main communicators, its content and its contribution to public communication and the public sphere.
