Hi, this is Mary. I earned my PhD in philosophy from the University of Connecticut in Spring of 2022 and am currently a lecturer with Yonsei University's Underwood International College. My research focuses on the way jokes (especially visual ones) meant to disempower a person or group can be taken up by the targeted person or group as a means of social re-empowerment. My work centers on the harm and help of how a visual joke is communicated, separate from and sometimes in contradiction to what is said (i.e., the way a visual depiction represents its subject and what it calls to mind in its viewership by this mode of representation). You can find my philpeople page here, my Academia page here, and my ResearchGate page here. Thanks for visiting!
