CALL. 24/12/2016: Aristophanic Laughter: How Was/Is Old Comedy Funny? - London (England)


go to CONGRESS


A two-day symposium, "Aristophanic Laughter: How Was/Is Old Comedy Funny?", will be held at King's College London on July 3rd-4th 2017. Despite all the work of the last few decades on Aristophanic Politics, Paratragedy, Ritual and Stagecraft, theoretical analyses of the mechanics of eliciting laughter in historically specific audiences of Old Comedy--audiences ancient or modern, western or global-village, masculine, feminine or gender-fluid--remain under-evolved.
