About the International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter 2019

Interest in both research on humour and practical applications of humour has increased sharply in recent decades. The aims and objectives for the International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter are to ensure that both students just beginning their research careers and those already-trained researchers considering a first project on humour will enter the field with a strong foundation in existing theoretical and methodological issues and will be 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.

The 19th Summer School invites all students in the sciences and humanities who are interested in new humour projects.

As a Summer School tradition, the Symposium invites the participants to present their own work, gaining experience and getting valuable feedback on their concepts and ideas.
