Call For Papers

Annual conference of the Société d’Études Anglaises Contemporaines (SEAC)
Guest writer: Jonathan COE

The conference on “Comedy, humour and satire in the literature and visual arts of the 20th and 21st centuries in Britain” will focus on the various forms and aspects of laughter, humour, comedy, satire, irony, farce and burlesque in the fields of study of the SEAC (fiction, poetry, drama, visual arts, cinema, photography). Bearing in mind the definitions of theoreticians and the uses of these modes, tones and genres in the literature and the arts of the past, contributors will try to determine how 20th- and 21st-century British writers and artists managed to adopt, transform, redefine and/or subvert them, while being aware of their often paradoxical, contradictory and unstable dimension. Jonathan Coe, the author of What a Carve Up!, The Rotters’ Club, and The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim, will be the guest of honour of the conference.
The full text of the guidelines is accessible at

All papers will be delivered in English. They may then be published in the peer-reviewed journal Études britanniques contemporaines.

Proposals (300 to 400 words), together with a biographical note, should be sent to Vanessa Guignery ( by April 25, 2015.
