Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), 40th Anniversary Convention
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts

Our cultural discourse on humor is filled with metaphors--dying with
laughter, punch lines, a joke that "kills"--that link laugher and
violence. The history of American humor has repeatedly literalized these
metaphors in a variety of forms, from slapstick to comic gore. This
panel seeks submissions that interrogate the links between violence and
laughter in American literature and culture in order to assess what the
combination of these two seemingly opposed discourses suggests about
American national identity.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

FEAR and ENDINGS (08/31/08; collection)

Human apocalyptic anxiety has constantly been felt and expressed over many
centuries. Each generation seems to have its own foci for the imminent
threats that it fears or hopes will destroy it. Our present historical
moment is no exception, and indeed seems to operate profoundly through
discourses of fear and endings.

>From the Christian Right’s expectation of the Rapture to a political
culture governed by terrorist anxiety, the contemporary moment is
experiencing an explicit refocusing and heightening of annihilation fears.
