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.

Early Modern Spain witnessed the birth of the literary and culturally significant picaresque genre with protagonists that existed in liminal spaces that allowed society to fashion them and in turn these pícaros to refashion themselves. Through autobiographies, letters and dialogues, they became manifested not only as beggars, buffoons, thieves, card sharks and prostitutes, but also as animals, actors, rich runaways and academics. This panel seeks papers in English or Spanish that examine how society fashions the picaresque genre’s protagonists and/or how pícaros shape themselves.
