For new research students just beginning their research careers or
those already-trained researchers considering a first research project
on humour, this course will ensure that they enter the field with a
strong foundation in existing theoretical and methodological issues,
and are well versed in the pitfalls confronting the scientific study
of humour. For those interested in practical applications of humour in
a variety of applied settings, the course will introduce them to the
kinds of approaches that are being used around the world to put humour
to work and to deliver the benefits of humour and laughter.

There will be sessions from Monday morning to Saturday afternoon
inclusive, with one afternoon free for relaxation, sight-seeing, etc.,
and about half a day during the week for the Symposium, where
participants may present their planned or finished research, or ideas
on how to implement and use humour in applied settings.

This year's lecturers include :

Dr Dorota Brzozowska (Opole University) (ISHS Emerging Scholar, 2005)
Professor Christie Davies (University of Reading)
Dr Jessica Milner Davis (University of Sydney)
Dr Christian Hempelmann (Hakia Inc.) Dr Giselinde Kuipers (University of Amsterdam)
Dr Graeme Ritchie (University of Aberdeen)
Professor Willibald Ruch (University of Zurich)
Dr Andrea Samson (University of Fribourg) (ISHS Emerging Scholar, 2006)

One afternoon includes a boat trip on the Danube River (included in
the registration fee). Participants may book a 3-day excursion (not
included in the registration fee) starting on the 29th of June to the
Royal Peles Castle and Bran Castle, also known as Dracula's Castle. A
day trip to Bucharest to visit the Romanian Parliament building is
also a possibility.
