32 Annual Conference of the International Society for Humor

Funny? Seriously? Seriously! Funny!

The annual ISHS conference will be held at the University of Bologna’s Summer Residence Center in Bertinoro, Italy from 29 June to 2 July, 2022.

The conference aims at a representative overview of the state of the art in the scientific study of humor; it offers five days of networking possibilities with humor scholars from a wide variety of disciplines in a medieval hamlet with breathtaking landscapes. And finally, delegates will have the chance to explore and enjoy Italy, with its rich offer of historic, artistic and culinary features and endless tourist possibilities. Bertinoro itself is a culinary and cultural treasure as there are numerous small family owned restaurants, cafes, and bars throughout the town.
