No description available, In the mid seventies both gender studies and humor studies emerged as new disciplines with scholars from various fields undertaking research in these areas The first publications that emerged in the field of gender studies came out of disciplines such as philosophy history and literature while early works in the area of humor studies initially concentrated on language linguistics and psychology Since then both fields have flourished but largely independently This book draws together and focuses the work of scholars from diverse disciplines on intersections of gender and humor giving voice to approaches in disciplines such as film television literature linguistics translation studies and popular culture, This is the first edited volume dedicated specifically to humor in interaction It is a rich collection of essays by an international array of scholars representing various theoretical perspectives but all concerned with interactional aspects of humor The contributors are scholars active both in the interdisciplinary area of humor studies and in adjacent disciplines such as linguistic pragmatics sociolinguistics discourse analysis psycholinguistics gender and translation studies The volume effectively offers an overview of the range of phenomena falling in the broad category of conversational humor and convincingly argues for the many different functions humor can fulfill bypassing simplistic humor theories reducing humor to one function All the articles draw on empirical material from different countries and cultures comprising conversations among friends and family talk in workplace situations humor in educational settings and experimental approaches to humor in interaction The book is sure to become an important reference and source of inspiration for scholars in the various subfields of humor studies pragmatics and socio linguistics, gt
