Event description

Description

Humour – a complex phenomenon central to human communication – has been approached from different points in various fields of research, such as cultural studies, linguistics, psychology, and sociology. Even though not much research has paid due attention to the role culture plays in humour in interaction, we argue that it is a crucial contextual factor that helps not only to use humour appropriately, but also to understand what functions it performs in interpersonal communication. Therefore, in this one-day symposium, we would like to explore that intrinsic relationship between humour and culture.

Keynote speakers:

Prof Meredith Marra (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)

Assoc. Prof Marta Dynel (University of Lodz, Poland)
