[UPDATE] Transnational Laughter: Contemporary Film and TV Comedy across National Borders [second call]

full name / name of organization: 
David Scott Diffrient and Shelley Bradfield / Colorado State University
contact email: 
scott.diffrient@colostate.edu; shelley.bradfield@colostate.edu

My co-editor and I are seeking additional proposals and contributions for a collection of original essays entitled Transnational Laughter: Contemporary Film and TV Comedy across National Borders. We have already accepted several proposals, but are now looking specifically for contributions dealing with the transnational flow of comic forms and humor-based cultural texts within and across African, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, South American and Central American contexts.

As the first edited volume of its kind, Transnational Laughter seeks to expand the field of media studies and shed light on overlooked areas of academic interest, taking comedy and its various subgenres (including black comedy, improv, modern slapstick, the romcom, satire, scatological humor, sketch comedy, spoofs, stand-up, and so forth) as vehicles through which to assess the international transit of these specific cultural forms over the past 25-30 years.
