Parade Parodies on Screen: that can't be real, or could it be?

Parade Talk

 Are you a movie director, writer, or someone who thought, “you know, this show would be better with a parade scene”? No. Maybe you’re a person who believes parades are boring? Oh, the horror. Either way, I have a list of humorous parade parodies from movies, television commercials, sketch comedies, and live streaming broadcasts that are sure to make you reconsider what you think about a parade.   

New Content on Anthropology News: Amy Garey on "Agents of Humor"

We've kicked off the school year with a fantastic Anthropology News article by Amy Garey (UCLA) about her fieldwork with student comedy leagues (KVN) in Russia and Ukraine. "Agents of Humor?" responds to a NATO-backed report that suggested that KVN is a soft-power tool of the Kremlin, and explains ethnographically why this is anything but the case.

Call for Panelists 2017 ASLH meeting in Las Vegas

By Joel E.  Black

Lecturer, University of Florida

 

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?

The American Studies Program and the Robert D. Farber University Archives and Special Collections Department at Brandeis University are pleased to announce a conference scheduled for October 27-28, 2016, to evaluate the legacy of comedian Lenny Bruce.
