Summary
Women and Comedy: History, Theory, Practice brings together leading researchers from Canada, the United States, and Europe in an interdisciplinary collection of essays to chart the future of critical inquiry in gender and comedy studies. Bridging research, performance, and reception, and making bold connections across genres, periods, and fields, the volume is especially attuned to the practice of teaching the history and theory of women's humor in the university classroom
