What can we learn from unexceptional texts and artifacts in the Middle Ages? How can we critically assess the metrics by which we evaluate quality? How can medieval studies reconcile, or recover from, the history of Orientalism in its estimation of non-European medieval traditions? This panel builds on conversations during the 2019 Medievalists @ Penn Conference on Mediocrity (https://middling-ages.tumblr.com), which we seek to carry in more explicitly transcultural directions.

The conference will include three panels, grouped thematically according to distinct modes of ecological entanglement:

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

What is the relationship between irony and other literary techniques, including but not limited to humor? How do authors utilize irony and humor in their texts? Are humor and irony to be considered a literary tool to disguise a personal or political agenda? Or are they simply a resource to entertain their readers?

This panel seeks presentations that analyze or investigate the role of irony, humor, and laughter in texts from early modern to contemporary examples by Italian writers. This panel will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss various new and important perspectives on the use of humor and irony in Italian literature.
