  • Dr. Ian Brodie (Associate Professor, Folklore) will present his sabbatical talk on Wednesday, March 20 from 3:00–4:00pm in CE 313 @cbuniversity. Carrot cake, coffee and tea will be provided. All are welcome! “I am a fan of hilarity”: Possible Directions for Oral-Formulaic Theory and the Study of Stand-Up Comedy. 😄 This talk addresses contemporary studies of oral formulaic theory to begin an exploration on what applicability Parry and Lord’s ideas of “spontaneous composition” could have for the study of stand-up comedy, using a routine from American comedian Paul F. Tompkins @pftompkins that made it to public mediation on four discrete occasions. How is a routine performed more than once: is it repeated, remembered or recreated? In a performance genre that is predicated in part on the surfeit of spontaneity, I consider the crystallization of certain mots justes as “hooks on which to hang a narrative in the teller’s memory” (Siikala 1990). #CBUFA #cbufaresearch #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty #librarians #labinstructors #archivists #researchchairs #nursingpracticeeducators #unionproud #sabbatical #standupcomedy #folklore
