  • Humor in mass media (e.g., humorous headlines, editorial cartoons)
  • Humor and digital literacy (e.g., humor in social networking, such as Facebook memes)
  • Humor and social issues (e.g., satire, political cartoons)
  • Humorous techniques for teaching language points (e.g., grammar rules, pronunciation, phonology)
In all of the above areas, research-informed perspectives which manage to use humor as a tool for providing insights into language and/or culture are particularly welcomed.
