Theme: Humour in all its forms: on screen, on the page, on stage, on air, online.

Given this is the silver anniversary of the AHSN conference, the theme has a scope that enables a broad disciplinary engagement and recognition that humour manifests in myriad of ways, a number of which are still unfolding. We are keen to hear about humour in all its forms.

Information on transport and accommodation will be provided closer to the time via the Events page on the AHSN webpages at University of Sydney. Other conference enquiries may be forwarded to ahsnconference@gmail.com

Submitting a Proposal

To submit a proposal for a paper, please send an abstract to ahsnconference@gmail.com

Abstracts will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. Proposals for panels of three presentations on a specific topic are welcome. Proposals from research students are particularly encouraged, with postgraduate scholarships available to the first five to successfully complete the review process.

The Call for papers opens on 9 April 2018 and closes on 31 July 2018. Successful applicants will be advised of review outcomes in order of submission and in all case by no later than 15 October 2018.

Presenters should subscribe to our free e-Newsletter, The Humour Studies Digest to ensure they receive all communications regarding the conference.
