Paper proposals are invited for the panel, "Laughter and Everyday Life" for the American Anthropological Associationís Meetings in 2009.
Schedule: December 2-6.
Venue: Philadelphia Marriott, Philadelphia, PA
Keywords: Laughter, Hegemony, and Everyday Life
This panel seeks to address the discursive space of laughter as a social fault line in everyday life. Proposal of interest would broadly explore laughter for the analysis of hegemonic processes, gender, class, and nation. The regional focus is open. Cultural practices and texts include but are not limited to theater, cartoons, jokes, stand-up comedy, television, and film.
Please e-mail a 250 word abstract by March 10, 2009 to:
Ritu G. Khanduri (email@example.com)
Papers that integrate the conference theme, The End/s of Anthropology, and associated questions: Does anthropology still provide a unique contribution? What are its contemporary goals, and are they different from those of previous intellectual generations? would be of particular interest.
