Humour
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Monday 23rd July to Tuesday 24th July 2018
Prague, Czech Republic

Humour also appears to work in different ways and on different levels; age, education, gender, ethnicity, space and place all seem to play a part in the things people find funny. This conference will seek to map the way humour works at all levels and begin to ask why we laugh, how we laugh and what purpose humour serves.
