 14th International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter

Host Institution: University of Sheffield
Website: http://www.humoursummerschool.org/14

Dates: 14-Jul-2014 - 22-Jul-2014
Location: Sheffield, United Kingdom

Focus: Endorsed by the International Society for Humour Studies (ISHS) the International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter is a one-week intensive course on all aspects of humour: theory, research and applications.
 
It offers presentations and workshops by leading scholars in the field. As the course is primarily aimed at those who are at an early stage of exploring humour, most of the participants are research students, but the material is also suitable for more established scholars, for example if they are moving into the area of humour from another discipline.
 
The Symposium takes place during the week, and is an opportunity for the participants to present their own work and receive feedback. In addition, provision is made for participants to make appointments with the lecturers to receive one-to-one consultations about their work.

Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

Description:
The Summer School and Symposium was founded in 2001 at Queen's University in Belfast by Professor Willibald Ruch, who oversees the event every year. It has been held all over Europe: Edinburgh (UK), Wolverhampton (UK),
Tübingen(Germany), Fribourg (Switzerland), Aberdeen (UK), Galați (Romania), Granada (Spain), Zürich (Switzerland), Tartu (Estonia), Savonlinna (Finland), Magdeburg (Germany).
 
In addition to Prof. Ruch, past lecturers at the Summer School have included: Salvatore Attardo, Christie Davies, Jessica Milner Davis, Christian Hempelmann, Giselinde Kuipers, Paul Lewis, Rod Martin, Paul McGhee, John Morreall, Neal Norrick, Elliott Oring, Graeme Ritchie.
 
The Summer School and Symposium is managed by an Advisory Board, along with Dr. Elena Hoicka, this year's local organiser.
