In the mid-seventies, both gender studies and humor studies emerged as new disciplines, with scholars from various fields undertaking research in these areas. The first publications that emerged in the field of gender studies came out of disciplines such as philosophy, history, and literature, while early works in the area of humor studies initially concentrated on language, linguistics, and psychology. Since then, both fields have flourished, but largely independently. This book draws together and focuses the work of scholars from diverse disciplines on intersections of gender and humor, giving voice to approaches in disciplines such as film, television, literature, linguistics, translation studies, and popular culture.

 “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body.” Almost a century after Margaret Sanger wrote these words, women’s reproductive rights are still hotly debated in the press and among policymakers, while film, television and other media address issues of birth control and abortion to global audiences. This collection of new essays brings fresh perspectives to the study of family planning, contraception and abortion with a focus on their representation in popular media. Topics include dramas of adoption and abortion, telling the story of the pill, Sanger’s depiction in entertainment media, and a controversy about demographic developments stirred by Carl Djerassi, also known as “the father of the pill.”

Die Autobiografie – zum 70. Geburtstag am 30. November 2016 Sie hat die Grenzen der Kunst gesprengt: sich gepeitscht, mit einer Glasscherbe ein Pentagramm in den Bauch geritzt, ein Messer in die Finger gerammt. Sie ist 2500 Kilometer auf der Chinesischen Mauer gegangen, zwölf Jahre in einem umgebauten Citroën-Bus durch die Welt gefahren und hat ein Jahr bei den Aborigines in Australien gelebt. Spätestens seit »The Artist is Present« – ihrer berühmten Performance 2010 im New Yorker Museum of Modern Art - gilt Marina Abramović in der ganzen Welt als Kultfigur. Robert Redford schwärmt für sie genauso wie Lady Gaga. Vom »Time Magazine« wurde sie zu den 100 wichtigsten Menschen des Jahres 2014 gewählt. In ihren Memoiren blickt Abramović zurück auf sieben Lebensjahrzehnte als charismatische Künstlerin und Grenzgängerin. Von ihrer strengen Kindheit im kommunistischen Jugoslawien, wo sie bei ihren der politischen Elite nahestehenden Eltern im Schatten Titos aufwuchs – bis hin zu ihren jüngsten Aktionen, bei denen sie die Seele von Millionen von Menschen mit der Kraft ihres Schweigens berührte.
