Funny in the Funnies

Studies in American Humor
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

Humor was the original scaffolding upon which American comic books were built. We have not historically called them “funny books” for nothing. Today, however, humor-based comics and graphic novels have been relatively marginalized by both scholars and contemporary readers alike. The focus of this special issue of Studies in American Humor, ser. 4, 4, no. 2 (October 2018), will be the comic side of comics, the funny that helped make the funnies. We are looking for essays that discuss graphic humor in periodicals from historical, thematic, and theoretical perspectives.

As political events across the world have made clear, the right wing is ascendant: from the election of Donald J. Trump in the United States; to the Brexit victory in the United Kingdom; to the rise of rise of rightist, nationalist, anti-immigrant, and neo-Nazi parties across Europe; to the election of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party in India; to the Philippine president’s professed admiration for Adolf Hitler; to the impeachment of a democratically elected woman leader in Brazil; to the military coup and gendered crackdown in Egypt; to the virulently antigay legislation in Uganda, in which US–based Christian evangelicals played no small role.

 Terrorism in Literature: On Examining a Global Phenomenon

A monographic volume on Terrorism

 

Mahmud Darwich claims: “Nothing, nothing justifies terrorism”. Terrorism, like a virus, is spreading to the whole world. It does not advocate any ideology; it rather involves psychopathological personalities.

Papers are invited to investigate and discuss terrorism in literary texts from different perspectives. What is this phenomenon? Why? What for? For/by Whom? What are its social, political and cultural drawbacks? What happened to humanity? How to stop this plague?

Imaginings: Other Places

This creative session seeks work that crosses, that inhabits several places or that moves relentlessly through and across places of genre, form, medium, and so on. It is meant as a partner and collaborator with the panel “Thinkings In and Out of Place,” though in this session the boundary-crossings activate and shape the works sought. The call is for scholarship|interpretive work projected into new forms with differently confluent streams of image and text, of prosaic and poetic, of academic and literary. Is there a way to project interpretation and theorization in such a way that resists or operates differently than the conventions of academic discourse, its unshakeable positivity and correlative thetic and agonistic stance?

Thinkings In and Out of Place

Some texts resist the place(s) of genre classifications and are nevertheless—in spite of the resistances they perform—constituted as within these boundaries: Plato, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, for example, tend to be held within disciplinary bounds of philosophy. In this panel, a focus will be on texts that seem to strive for displacement, for other places or, more radically, for a continual re-placement or release from place(s) of genre.
