Alberto Godiolo awarded Vidi grant by NWO

12 August 2021

Alberto Godioli has been awarded a five-year NWO Vidi grant for his project 'Forensic Humour Analysis: Rethinking Offensive Humour and Its Legal Regulation'.

Defining the legal boundaries of free speech is difficult – even more so when humour is involved. National and international courts often have an inconsistent approach to offensive humour. Building on insights from humour studies and literary theory, this project aims to improve the handling of humour in free speech regulation.

Godioli is one of five UG/UMCG researchers to have received a Vidi grant this year. Read about the others here.
