         Endorsed by the International Society for Humour Studies (ISHS)

In the tradition of its predecessors, this year's Summer School is designed to 
meet the needs of students and researchers who are entering the field of humour 
studies, with a range of interest that runs from the philosophical through the 
physiological to the practical. At the same time, the programme also addresses 
itself to trained scholars in the natural sciences and the humanities who are 
considering embarking on new investigations of humour or laughter-related phenomena.

The course programme consists of different structural components which are 
intended to address the various interests and needs of the participants in the 
best possible way. Lecture classes by a selected group of exerienced 
international scholars make up the bulk of the programme (see 
humoursummerschool.org/events for information about previous events). These 
"talks" are supplemented by workshops, a symposium, and opportunities for 
individual discussions with the speakers ("Meet the Lecturer"). Sessions are 
held from Monday morning to Saturday afternoon. One afternoon is set aside for 
relaxation and sight-seeing.

Among the lecturers are:

Professor Willibald Ruch (Department of Psychology, University of Zurich, 
Switzerland)
Professor Christie Davies (Department of Sociology, University of Reading, England)
Professor Paul Lewis (English Department, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, USA)
Dr. Graeme Ritchie (Department of Computing Science, University of Aberdeen, 
Scotland).
