Meeting Description:

Seminar 74 - 'Humour in the Media: Voicing Agendas, Communicating Laughter'.
From cartoons and comic strips, through internet gags and humorous adverts, to
sitcoms and funny remarks in editorials and opinion articles, the media thrive
in linguistic manifestations of humour. Whether or not it serves as a playful
distraction, a selling strategy, or an instrument to make a point, attack indirectly or voice the unspeakable, humour in the media deserves attention both as a discoursal device and a sociolinguistic phenomenon. This seminar invites papers that look into the various roles humour plays in print and audiovisual media, as well as the forms it takes, the purposes it serves, the butts it targets, the implications it carries and the differences it may assume across cultures.




Call for Papers

We invite 15-minute papers (followed by discussion) that look into any of the
various linguistic and discursive roles which humour plays in print and
audiovisual media, as well as the forms it takes, the purposes it serves, the
butts it targets, the implications it carries and the differences it may assume
across cultures.

Research areas include, but are not limited to, (critical) discourse analysis,
sociolinguistics, intercultural studies, semantics, pragmatics, semiotics,
rhetoric and communication studies.

200-word abstracts should be sent as Word attachments to (both) the seminar's
convenors before 31 January 2010:

Isabel Ermida (University of Minho, Braga, Portugal) iermidailch.uminho.pt;
Jan Chovanec (Masaryk University / Masarykova univerzita, Brno, Czech Republic)

Acceptance notification deadline: 28 February 2010.
