*Theorising Comedy Studies: Ethics, Aesthetics, Politics (ed. Helen Davies and Sarah Ilott)*

We are in the process of putting together a book proposal for an edited collection on the above topic, for submission to the Palgrave Studies in Comedy series in late Spring 2017. We are seeking an additional contributor to write on any facet of the ethics, aesthetics and politics of comedy in the context of the U.S.

Potential topics might be, but are by no means limited to:

  * U.S. sitcoms/stand-up etc. and the politics of identity (gender,
    sexuality, race, class, disability)
  * ‘Free speech’ and the limits of humour in the U.S.
  * Comedy and politics: the uses/abuses of humour in the context of
    presidential campaigns/elections etc.

We welcome submissions from researchers at any stage of their career, and critical writing from any perspective within media/cultural/literary studies.

Please submit a 500 word abstract (with a short biographical note of no more than 100 words) to (H.C.Davies /at/ <mailto:(H.C.Davies /at/> by 23^rd March 2017. If accepted, final chapters of no more than 7000 words (including all bibliographical materials) will be due by 31^st December 2017.
