Comedy, Identity, Health & Well-Being

This dual conference on Comedy and Identity and Comedy and Health has been
organized by Liverpool Hope University and the Liverpool Comedy Trust to
coincide with the Liverpool Comedy Festival in July 2006. The intention is
to stimulate multi- and interdisciplinary debate, controversy and
publication on the themes of humour, laughter and the comic in its various
aspects as they pertain to all permutations of human identity, and as they
contribute to well being and health.
