Description

K4U.12 King's Building Strand Camus
03 - 04/07/2017 (9:00-18:00)

A two-day symposium to be held at King's College London on July 3rd-4th 2017.

Convenor: Edith Hall with the help of Peter Swallow

Theoretical analyses of the mechanics of eliciting laughter in historically specific audiences of Old Comedy--audiences ancient or modern, western or global-village, masculine, feminine or gender-fluid--remain under-evolved. Our speakers address this question from the perspectives of Neuroscience, Psychology, Anthropology, Comparative Linguistics, Philosophy, Literary Theory and Performance.
Registration and a detailed programme will be available shortly. It is hoped that postgraduate bursaries will be available to cover the full costs of the conference.

Registration: £15 per person per day includes lunch and refreshments.

16 bursaries are available for students and low income. Please apply directly to Edith Hall: edith.hall@kcl.ac.uk.
