The American Society for Aesthetics has awarded $7,000 in partial support for the Conference on the Ethics and Aesthetics of Stand-Up Comedy at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, April 5-8, 2017. The conference was organized by Sheila Lintott, Associate Professor, and Jason Leddington, Associate Professor, both of the Department of Philosophy.

The interdisciplinary conference will explore the intersections of stand-up comedy with other art forms and its potential for dialogue with social and political critiques. In addition to academic papers and presentations, the conference will include a performance workshop, an "open-mic" night, roundtable discussions with comedians, and stand-up comedy performances.

The Conference Organizing Committee includes faculty from English, Interdisciplinary Arts, and Women's and Gender Studies, representing several colleges in the region.

The call for papers is here, with a submission deadline of January 3, 2017. The conference organizers expect to provide some travel support to graduate students with papers accepted for the meeting.
