Australasian Humour Studies Network Conference

The 24th AHSN Conference will take place 2-4 February 2018 at the Centre for Tourism and Regional Opportunities, Central Queensland University, Cairns Campus, Cairns, Australia.

“Humour: How Does it Travel?” is the conference theme, recognising that humour moves between venues, culture, users and purposes, all of which may affect it in one way or another. For information on transport and accommodation and early conference enquiries, visit our Events page on the AHSN webpages at University of Sydney. More detailed information on the Call for Proposals and the AHSN review process is also located there.
