23rd AHSN ANNUAL CONFERENCE 1-3 FEBRUARY 2017

The 23rd AHSN Conference will take place 1-3 February 2017 at the School of Mines Ballarat (SMB) campus of Federation University Australia, convened by Dr Angus McLachlan, School of Health Sciences and Psychology, Federation University.

The Conference theme, “Humour: Here and There; Then and Now”, is intended to recognise that when differing cultures collide-as occurred in Ballarat during its foundation in 1837 and the gold rush era of the 1850s,-there is often both tragedy and humour. The program reflects both this idea and a wider approach to studying humour and laughter.
