The ASLH is in Las Vegas! Where better to examine the intersection of comic words and law?
We seek a third paper to complement two others: one on “blue” (or filthy) comedy in the late-nineteenth century and a second on the futility of speech regulation. We welcome paper proposals on comedy and speech regulation in any period of American history.
We also seek a volunteer to comment on the panel?
