Holy Names University, in the Oakland Hills overlooking the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area, was pleased to host the 34th International Humor Conference and the 27th Conference of the International Society for Humor Studies.  For the 2015 ISHS Conference, we had research papers, symposia, and workshops on humor that fell into the thematic areas of (1) Cognition and Creativity, (2) Public and Private Discourse, (3) Individuality and Individual Styles, (4) Culture and Diversity, and (5) Health and Well-Being.
