Authors
Publication Date

Abstract

This issue of Studies in American Humor, focusing on early and antebellum American humor, takes us deep into the archives to explore the complicated relationships between humor and gender identity at different historical moments and in different genres. Taken collectively, the essays in this issue reveal how writers have deployed humor to negotiate cultural conceptions of masculinity and feminity as well as to navigate relations between the sexes.
