The American Humor Studies Association at SAMLA seeks papers on "The
Unspeakable as a Laughing Matter." As the recent film "The Aristocrats"
shows yet again, dirty can be funny. So can the shocking, the horrid,
the appalling, the repulsive, and the unspeakable, which can be spoken
if there is the right balance of absurdity, wit, and (perhaps) horror
behind it. This panel is open to studies of such humor, whether in
popular jokes, in literature, in film, on television, or the internet.

Appreciating (?) Nineteenth-Century American Poetry (01/25/06; ALA)

A number of recent works have aimed to recover nineteenth-century American
women's poetry; a few studies have also given renewed attention to male

literary value to this material? Each scholar ultimately either answers
this question for him- or herself, or chooses to set it aside.
