Dear Amy
although I will not be able to come to the seminar, I would be very
interested in the published proceedings.  Will there be a publication
arising from the event?   How would I get a copy?
thanks
Ken

>
>
>SEMINAR ANNOUNCEMENT
>

>This year's Seminar features Rod A. Martin and Amy Carrell.

>
>1999 SEMINAR COURSES
>
>SENSE OF HUMOR, HEALTH, AND WELLBEING--ROD A. MARTIN
>The idea that humor is good for one's health has become generally
>accepted as fact, and the health-enhancing benefits of humor are
>being widely promoted through books, seminars, workshops,
>magazine articles, and the internet. This course will examine the
>theoretical rationale and empirical evidence concerning the
>relationship between sense of humor and both physical and
>psychological health.  We will begin with discussion of several
>key questions: What do we mean by sense of humor? What do we mean
>by health?  What are the possible mechanisms by which humor might
>influence health?  We will then examine methods and criteria for
>evaluating empirical research in this field.  The remainder of
>the course will focus on a review and evaluation of the existing
>research in several health-related areas, such as the
>relationship between humor and the immune system, pain, and
>coping with stress.  It is hoped that this course will provide an
>empirically grounded understanding of what we know and what we
>don't know about humor and health.
>
>HUMOR THEORIES, AUDIENCES, AND MORE-AMY CARRELL
>This course will begin by looking at some of the major facets of humor,
>especially the social nature of humor, and then move to an examination of
>some of the major theories and groups of theories of humor.  The course
will
>then move to a discussion of what happens when individuals hear joke texts,
>how such texts are processed, and what joke texts can reveal not only about
>the content but the teller and audience.  Finally, the course will examine
>some of the practical applications of the Audience-Based Theory of Verbal
>Humor.
>
>AMY CARRELL, DIRECTOR AND FACULTY
>Amy Carrell earned her Ph.D. in linguistics from Purdue University in 1993
>and is currently an associate professor of English at the University of
>Central Oklahoma.  She has been president of the International Society for
>Humor Studies (ISHS) and chaired the 1997 ISHS conference at the University
>of Central Oklahoma.  Dr. Carrell has taught courses on humor and laughter
>and has spoken internationally, especially about her audience-based theory
>of verbal humor.  She is on the board of consulting editors of HUMOR:
>International Journal of Humor Research and the patronat and organizing
>committee of the annual congress on therapeutic humor in Basel,
Switzerland.
