What Is Folklore? - American Folklore Society

Questions about why contemporary political satire abounds and what its effects might be do not easily find convincing answers via literary and cultural studies, although these are important. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach can help produce firmer answers. A group of Australasian humour scholars with backgrounds that include social science, politics, media studies, literary history, visual arts and performative humour, undertook to examine the nexus between satire and politics in contemporary British, American and Australian satirical media. Impact on political life and voter intention was a particular focus as was their rhetorical and persuasive methodology. This presentation reviews the project’s processes and results to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of a trans-disciplinary approach to humour. The resulting book is Satire and Politics: The Interplay of Heritage and Tradition (ed. Jessica Milner Davis, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2107).
