Call Deadline: 30-Sep-2012

Meeting Description:

The aim of the present conference is to bring together researchers with a range of views on humour and politics. The relation of humour and politics is definitely not a straightforward one. The central question that could be raised here is whether humour influences politics and shapes both political figures and political acts. Furthermore, we would like to draw the attention on what actually happens whenever humour occurs in political settings or is used to refer to political affairs.

Call for Papers:

We welcome contributions on:

Humour in political speeches
Humour in political campaigning and political conferences
Humour in parliamentary debates
Humour and democracy
Humour and leadership
Military humour
Humour in totalitarian societies
Humour in wartime
Political humour in the media
Translation and political humour

In order to meet these objectives, the organizers invite contributions from both linguistic and related non-linguistic disciplines such as:

Political studies
Media studies
Cultural studies

The elaboration of joint methodological frameworks is strongly encouraged. Contributions from empirical studies are most welcome.

Submission of Abstracts:

Deadline for submitting abstracts is September 30, 2012.

Abstracts of 350 words should be sent to ichcupgmail.com together with the registration form available on our website. Acceptances will be sent out on a rolling basis one week after submission. If you have any queries concerning submissions, please contact the organizers at the email address indicated above.

Papers will be published with a well-known international publishing house.
