The deputy Prime Minister of Turkey, Bülent Arinç, faced global backlash this week as he stated that “[women] should not laugh in public.” In response, women everywhere have been posting pictures of themselves smiling and laughing online, with the hashtag #direnkahkaha (Turkish for ‘resist laughter’). The reaction has had international reach, with high-profile celebrities getting involved, including Emma Watson who posted a photograph of her laughing on Twitter.
As Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted,” and at OUP, we couldn’t agree more. From the science behind why we laugh to laughter among deaf signers, and from humorous quotations to how we can interpret our smiles, there are plenty of resources for you to explore and let yourself giggle along to. And if that doesn’t work, well, there are always plenty of cat gifs.
