It is based on the results of a three-year research programme, entitled Gender - Laughter - Media (2003-2006) and includes a series of investigations on traditional and modern media in western cultures from the 18th to the 20th century. A theoretical opening part is followed by four thematic sections that explore the multiple forms of irritating stereotypical gender perceptions- aspects of (post-)colonialism and multiculturalism- the comic impact of literary and media genres in different national cultures- as well as the different comic strategies in fictional, philosophical, artistic or real life communication.

The volume presents a variety of new approaches to the overlaps between gender and laughter that have only barely been considered in groundbreaking research. It forms a valuable read for scholars of literary, theatre, media, and cultural studies, at the same time reaching out to a general readership.
