I am pleased to announce that the inaugural FIRtH Research Theme for 2014 will be Humour Studies.
The aim of the yearly theme is to provide a core of focused research activity with the potential to involve the wider membership of the Institute.
The 2014 theme leaders are Christine Nicholls (Australian Studies), Robert Phiddian (English and Creative Writing), Colette Mrowa-Hopkins (Language Studies - French) and Antonella Strambi (Language Studies - Italian).
This genuinely interdisciplinary theme has the potential to involve a wide range of researchers in Humanities and Creative Arts and beyond. Details of the proposed programme of research activities throughout the year will be posted on FIRtH’s website in the coming weeks and I encourage members of FIRtH to get involved with this exciting new research activity.

Director, Flinders Institute for Research in the Humanities (FIRtH)
