We support scholars researching humour-related topics by offering a program of annual conferences and other resources, including links to the International Society for Humor Studies.
Our focus is on emerging research into humour and laughter and promoting links between humour scholars in different academic departments and geographical locations.
Our network has grown from 40 members across 10 different disciplines at our first conference in 1997 to more than 350 members by our 24th Annual Conference in 2018. Our members are primarily based in Australia and New Zealand, but also come from South-East Asia and elsewhere.
Details of the 28th Annual AHSN Conference to be held in February 2022 will be announced here soon.
