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

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
