Encyclopedia of Humor Studies

Description

The Encyclopedia of Humor Studies explores the concept of humor in history and modern society in the United States and internationally. This work's scope encompasses the humor of children, adults, and even nonhuman primates throughout the ages, from crude jokes and simple slapstick to sophisticated word play and ironic parody and satire. As an academic social history, it includes the perspectives of a wide range of disciplines, including sociology, child development, social psychology, life style history, communication, and entertainment media. Readers will develop an understanding of the importance of humor as it has developed globally throughout history and appreciate its effects on child and adult development, especially in the areas of health, creativity, social development, and imagination.

Features & Benefits: The book's 335 articles are organized in A-to-Z fashion in two volumes (approximately 1,000 pages).  It includes a Reader's Guide that groups related entries thematically. A Chronology of Humor, a Resource Guide, and a detailed Index are included. Each entry concludes with References/Further Readings and cross references to related entries. The Index, Reader's Guide themes, and cross references between and among related entries provide search-and-browse features in the electronic version. This two-volume, A-to-Z set provides a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers in such diverse fields as communication and media studies, sociology and anthropology, social and cognitive psychology, history, literature and linguistics, and popular culture and folklore.

Emerging trends in the social and behavioral sciences : an interdisciplinary, searchable, and linkable resource

Description

"Each essay in this collection of over 400 is drawn from the core social and behavioral sciences disciplines of anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology and contains a summary of what is presently known about the topic and identifies promising areas for future research. Hyperlinks accompany each essay, which direct readers to other relevant essays inEmerging Trends; these essays present different aspects and points of view on the topic and often rely on different levels of analysis. The result is a unique tool for learning about developments in our fields, an intelligent, interdisciplinary, multi-dimensional, user-friendly, "smart" system of cross-referencing applied to important topics of study.

Emerging Trends will promote interdisciplinary and multi-layered awareness on key topics by directing readers’ attention to aspects of topics that readers will likely never have heard of or thought about (much less know how to find). To do this, dense layers of hyperlinks have been created, connecting each essay with others that focus on other facets of the topic, often written by authorities from different fields of study and disciplines. Readers are strongly urged to explore these hyperlinks in order to expand their own thinking about topics that interest them." from Book Home page

This resource includes 15 chapters authored by U-M researchers.
