Seminar on reflexivity in stand-up comedy

On October 6 at 12.00 Antti Lindfors (University of Turku, Folkloristics) will present a paper “Narration and Gestures in Stand-Up Comedy”. Seminar will take place in the Fourth Floor Seminar Room, Vanemuise 42.
The presentation will showcase the baselines of his current article in progress. In this article, he will continue and expand on the study of reflexivity in stand up comedy, a genre of popular cultural oral performance, one of the most striking characteristics of which relates to its highly contextualized and ostensibly “open” interactional form. Special attention will paid to gestures, which – when coordinated with narrative discourse, provide us with an entrance to look into how comics creatively manage their performances both spatially and interactionally, while conforming to or departing from the conventions associated with the genre.
All are welcome to participate!
