Deadly Humour in a Womba World: A Study of Indigenous Australian Humorous Literature

thesis
posted on 14.10.2018 by FATEMA JOHERA AHMED
My thesis studies the use of humour in Indigenous Australian literature. I look at how Indigenous people tell stories of colonisation and trauma through comedy. I argue that their humour allows Indigenous people to survive and resist despair.
