Event Description:
The Department of Philosophy in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences is proud to present the 2019 Kraemer Lecturer, Dr. Elisabeth Camp, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. This year's lecture is titled, "Just Kidding: Sarcasm, Jokes and Willful Deniability in Speech" and will be given at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, February 21, in Gearhart Hall Auditorium (GEAR 26).
Professor Camp has provided the following abstract for her lecture: In political discourse and personal conversations, speakers often turn to jokes and other forms of indirect speech as a way to preserve ‘plausible deniability’ about what they meant. Interlocutors typically let them get away with such evasions, even when the speaker’s intended meaning is palpably obvious to all parties. I distinguish several species of willfully manipulative speech; diagnose some common factors that help explain their rhetorical effectiveness; and suggest some ways in which resistant audiences can fight back.
