Perspectives from the Global South

Shepherd Mpofu



Digital humour in the COVID-19 pandemic: Perspectives from the Global South offers a groundbreaking intervention on how digital media were used from below by ordinary citizens to negotiate the global pandemic humorously. This book considers the role played by digital media during the pandemic, and indeed in the socio-political life of the Global South, as indispensable and revolutionary to human communication. Cases studies are from a diverse range of countries, including Brazil, India, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
