An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Monday 23rd July to Tuesday 24th July 2018
Prague, Czech Republic
Humour seems to be a core feature of human life. The ability to provoke laughter, provide amusement or find people and the situations in which they find themselves funny is universally common across cultures and societies. 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.
