Lunchtime Seminar Series - Taboo! Humour, Anxiety and the Body

The inaugural Lunchtime Seminar of the semester will take place on Tuesday 5th October from 12.30-1.30pm in Education Building Room ED-4036, Memorial University, St. John's.

Folklore PhD student Laura Sanchini will present a paper entitled "Taboo!: Humour, Anxiety and the Body."

"The talk is about fart-lore and relationships," says Sanchini. "It should be a lighthearted and funny look at taboos."

Everyone is most welcome to attend. Feel free to bring your lunch.

Future seminars are scheduled for 2nd November (Janice Tulk) and 16th November (Ginny Fugarino). Mark your diaries now! Further details will be available nearer the time.

Organizers are still looking for more presenters for this semester, and for Winter 2011. If you are interested in presenting, or would like more information, please contact Joy on or Ian on
