Call for Posts: "Humor in America"--A Humor Studies Blog
"Humor in America"
The new web publication, "Humor in America," is seeking original posts or cross-posted content from your own blog. Contributors are welcome to submit on any aspect of American Humor, broadly considered, or humor studies more generally.
We are interested in short articles (300-3000 words) focused on (but
not limited to) the following areas:
*pedagogy of humor
*theory of humor
*recovery of sources/authors, esp. online sources
*interviews with comedians, humor scholars, or other figures
*focused musings, thoughts, or polemics
*responses to humor in popular culture, academic research, or any
other venue that seems fertile
*movies/book reviews (apart from recent scholarly works)
HA! Blog will not publish reviews of recent scholarly books, so as to
not infringe on the purview of Studies in American Humor. We will
consider reevaluations of older scholarly works. We will also
consider reviews of popular sources (movies, books, comic collections,
TV shows, stand-up comedy, etc.).
Review by a contributing editor will vet an article for suitable
content for the blog but will not constitute “peer review.” Submissions are not guaranteed to be published. Authors will be responsible for errors of fact, grammar, or interpretation. We encourage cross-posting and re-posting from other blogs (with permission) and will link to other blogs upon request, when
appropriate. Authors will retain copyright of their posts. The site is non-profit and involves no thought or hope of monetary gain or expense.
Please let me know if you are interested in publishing on the site.
It would be helpful if you let me know what kind of post you are
thinking about (length, subject, etc.), when you might be submitting,
and anything else that might be helpful. Feel free to ask questions.
