Come hear Dr. Michelle Liu of the University of Washington share, “ What Laughter Tells Us: Asian Americans, Comedy, and Belonging”. Join us on the evening of November 15th at 7pm right here at EUUC.
Laughter shapes the way we listen to each other, and can be a signal of who belongs—and who doesn’t.
While everyone finds different things funny, we all have experienced laughter. And what we find funny shapes how we interconnect. Through clips of Asian American stand-up comedians, Professor Michelle Liu explores how humor can change the patterns of belonging that everyone in the United States has inherited.
When we want to learn about the past, we turn to history books. When we want to learn about how the past continues to live within us, we can turn to humor. Join Liu for a conversation about why laughing matters.
