CALL:

Gods and rituals figure in bawdy jokes, political satire, bad puns, and little poems—all designed to make the listener-reader guffaw. What role did humor play in divine-human relations and ancient religion more broadly? Was is irreligious? A sign of intimacy with the gods? Something else entirely? What theoretical frameworks might one use to explore various comedic literary genres and their employment of gods and rituals for a laugh? How might such sources be understood so that we as scholar can reconstruct ancient religion in a more nuanced way?
