Abstract

The satire of globalisation and its impact is an emerging field that engages not with a single target, but with the failings of networks, systems, interdependencies, and international supply chains. Changing the focus of critique from single to multiple targets impacts how satire operates. Through creative practice and critical research, I explore how and if the transnational satirist can critique these sprawling, more entangled structures through humour.

In order to explore the complexities of this emerging genre, I analyse the creative process of writing a multi-sited satirical novel about the trade of coltan, a conflict mineral used in mobile phones extracted in eastern Congo, manufactured in China, and supplied to European consumers.
