SAMLA 92: Scandal! Literature and Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts

Session Title: Scandalous Humor/Humorous Scandal

Deadline for submissions: May 15, 2020

Full Name/Name of Organization: American Humor Studies Association

Contact email: schesters@uh.edu

Both perennial elements of a society, scandal is often fodder for humor, and humor fodder for scandal. From their subversion of existing power structures, to issues of critical reception, to objectionable behavior on the part of creators, humorous texts have exposed, caused, and responded to many instances of cultural uproar. This panel will explore the ways that humor and scandal are intimately related. Papers and presentations on any aspect of humor expression are welcome, including but not limited to analysis of stand up or sketch comedy, satire, political cartoons, satirical activism, parody, literature, television, film, or music.

Please submit a 250-word abstract, brief biographical statement (including academic affiliation and contact information), and A/V requirements to Sam Chesters, University of Houston, at schesters@uh.edu by May 15th, 2020.

This panel is an affiliated session with the South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference 92 in Jacksonville, Florida, from November 13-15, 2020.
