This series aims to publish high-quality research on a broad range of
topics in humor studies, including irony and laughter. Topics include,
but are not limited to, pragmatics, the sociology of humor, the
psychology of humor, translation studies, literary studies, and studies
of visual humor combining word and image. Since humor research
encompasses a variety of disciplines, we welcome theoretical and
methodological approaches from any of these disciplines, thereby
including the humanities, as well as the social and cognitive sciences.
Examples include, among others, philosophy, anthropology, cultural
studies, linguistics, media and communication studies, psychology,
neuroscience, and computer science. Mutual intelligibility of studies
across these various domains is a goal to be pursued within the series.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
