CfP International Conference on Verbal Humor (Universidad de Alicante, 23-25 ottobre 2019)

http://griale.dfelg.ua.es/cihv2019/en/homepage/

The GRIALE research group is pleased to announce the upcoming International Conference on Verbal Humor (CIVH), which will be held in October 23th-25th, 2019 at the University of Alicante (Spain). The GRIALE research group, which promotes the conference, works on verbal humor and irony since 2002 (http://griale.dfelg.ua.es/). This conference will mean the closing of two of our research projects (GENHUMID -FFI2015-64540-C2-1-P (MINECO-FEDER- y GRIALE Observa -PROMETEO 2016/052, Generalitat Valenciana), and the progress of the research project FIGURKID -FFI2016-76047-P (AEI / FEDER, UE). Further, we are convinced that it will be also a great opportunity to bring together several approaches to humor, share knowledge on the latest research on the linguistics of humor and create new research bonds among the researchers.

We are very honoured to announce the participation of the following keynote speakers:

Salvatore Attardo ( Texas A&M University – Commerce)
Tony Veale (University College Dublin)
Victor Raskin (Purdue University)
Nancy Bell (Washington State University)
Helga Kotthoff (University of Freiburg)

Furthermore, in the different panels, we will count with the participation of invited speakers such as:
Jef Verschueren (University of Antwerp)
Neal Norrick (Saarland University)
Delia Chiaro (University of Bologna)

Likewise, CIHV is also a great opportunity to bring closer research on humor to the work of humorists, script writers and journalists. In this sense, a roundtable is scheduled with the participation of the following invited speakers:

Darío Adanti (cartoonist and illustrator)
Kap (graphic humorist and caricaturist)
Miguel Sánchez-Romero (producer of humorous audiovisual programs)

During the celebration of CIHV, it will be held the opening of the retrospective exhibition Antología de Humor Social, under the auspices of the Vice-chancellor’s department for Culture, Sports and Languages and with the participation of Enrique Pérez Penedo (Enrique).
