Abstract:

If politics is a serious matter and humour a funny one, this volume investigates
how and why the boundaries between the two are blurred: politics can be
represented in a humorous manner and humour can have a serious intent.
Political humour conveys criticism against the political status quo and/or
recycles and reinforces dominant views on politics. The data analysed comes
from European states with different sociopolitical histories and traditions and the
methodologies adopted originate in different fields (discourse analysis, folklore
and cultural studies, media studies, sociolinguistics, sociology, theatre
semiotics). The first part of the volume is dedicated to politicians' humour as a
means of public positioning, deliberation, and eventually attack against political
adversaries, while the second one involves political satire as realised in different
genres: animation, impersonation, and cartoons. Last but not least, the third part
shows how political humour can be manipulated in public debates or become an
integral part of postmodern art.
