Meeting Description:

The Conference is endorsed by the International Society for Humour Studies.

Interest in both research on humour and practical applications of humour has
increased sharply in the past decade. The aims and objectives for the
International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter were to ensure
that both new research students just beginning their research careers or those
already-trained researchers considering a first research project on humour will
enter the field with a strong foundation in existing theoretical and
methodological issues, and are well versed in the pitfalls confronting the
scientific study of humour. For those interested in practical applications of
humour in a variety of applied settings, the course will introduce them to the
kinds of approaches that are being used around the world to put humour to work
and to deliver the benefits of humour and laughter.
