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

This panel will explore how twentieth-century texts, literary or
theoretical, convey the relationship between gender and humor. How do
gender norms help determine a text’s invitation to laughter, and how does
humor shape, preserve, and/or disrupt these concepts of gender identity?
Might there be a categorical alliance between the queer and the comic?
How has humor functioned as a gendered liability or advantage in modern
canon-making?

For historians, watersheds are an inescapable tool. To think in terms of
continuity and change, scholars cannot help but look for ruptures and
breaks, turning points and defining moments. But a timeframe demands a
beginning and an end. The validity of origins or beginnings has now been
challenged. But what of ‘end’?

On September 26, 2008 the Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies
at the University of Leeds (UK) is holding a postgraduate conference on the
subject of the idea of an end to empire.
