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

Our cultural discourse on humor is filled with metaphors--dying with
laughter, punch lines, a joke that "kills"--that link laugher and
violence. The history of American humor has repeatedly literalized these
metaphors in a variety of forms, from slapstick to comic gore. This
panel seeks submissions that interrogate the links between violence and
laughter in American literature and culture in order to assess what the
combination of these two seemingly opposed discourses suggests about
American national identity.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
