The "International Society for Humor Studies" (ISHS) has membership all around the world. Most of these members are university professors, in such disciplines as Psychology, Medicine, Linguistics, Literature, Education, Philosophy, Fine Arts, Religion, Politics, and Sociology. All of our members are interested in how humor varies from country to country, or according to Vocation, Age, Region, (In)formality, Ethnicity, or Sex (VARIES). Our annual meetings alternate between the United States and other countries. Salvator Attardo is the editor of our journal, HUMOR: INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HUMOR RESEARCH. We also have bibliographies on humor scholarship as it relates to various other areas of research.
