The Memeing of Politics: A Genealogy of Online Political Humour
“The more repressive the regime, the more numerous the political jokes.” Alan Dundes, 1971.
In my master’s dissertation titled Dangerous Words: Digital Citizenship and Censorship in Turkey, I explored how users within the Turkish cyberspace utilised subversive online humour to engage in political dissent. I adopted a netnographic data collection method for this study, focusing primarily on the case of Dangerous Turkish Minds.
I was supervised by Dr. Liene Ozoliņa.
