dc.description.abstract

This thesis examines the contemporary interplay between satire and politics, arguing that it has contributed to three significant shifts within political discourse. Firstly, certain satires are now being used as trusted, legitimate sources of political information and truth. Secondly, politicians increasingly engage with satire in ways that suggest a political attempt at co-option. Finally, online “citizen satire” has, due to the global flow of information, started to contribute to political debates in offline traditional media.
