SEMINAR ANNOUNCEMENT

The fourth International Humor Studies Seminar will be held at the
University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) from June 21 until June 26, 1999.
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.

ROD A. MARTIN, FACULTY
Rod A. Martin obtained his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of
Waterloo, Canada, in 1984 and has been a faculty member in the Department of
Psychology at the University of Western Ontario (Canada) since then.  He has
published numerous journal articles and book chapters on sense of humor,
stress, and coping.  With Herbert Lefcourt, he is co-author of Humor and
Life Stress: Antidote to Adversity.  He is currently a member of the board
