RACE: A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT WITHOUT A BIOLOGICAL FOUNDATION
Developing from her research into the histories of the roles of buffoons in 17th century Spain’s Royal court, where carnivalesque figures where used to legitimise and maintain racist cultural beliefs and behaviours, she continues to analyse the rhetoric and performance of comedians in the British black comedy circuit.
