|Meeting Description:||The aim of the present conference is to bring together researchers with a range of views on humour and politics. The relation of humour and politics is definitely not a straightforward one. The central question that could be raised here is whether humour influences politics and shapes both political figures and political acts. Furthermore, we would like to draw the attention on what actually happens whenever humour occurs in political settings or is used to refer to political affairs.|
