Announcement: Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter

http://www.csd.abdn.ac.uk/isshl07/

   7th International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter

             University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland

                http://www.csd.abdn.ac.uk/isshl07/

                       July 9-14, 2007


     DEADLINE FOR EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT :  31st MARCH !


As in previous years, the Summer School is designed not only to fit
the needs of new students and researchers preparing for careers that
would be enhanced by a deeper knowledge of humor and laughter (in
dimensions ranging from the philosophical through the physiological to
the practical), but also for trained scholars in the natural sciences
and humanities who are considering embarking on new investigations of
humor/laughter-related phenomena.

The Symposium is a session within the week when the Summer School participants give presentations about their own work.

Enrolment in the Summer School is deliberately limited (less than 30
participants) so as to accommodate the individual interests of each
student and to keep the seminars to an optimal didactic size.


LECTURERS:
        Prof Christie Davies (UK)
	Dr Christian Hempelmann (USA)
        Dr Giselinde Kuipers (Netherlands)
	Dr Sharon Lockyer (UK)
