10th International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter: Theory, Research and Applications
Why a Humour Summer School?
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.
