Comedy and social science: towards a methodology of funny

While humour and laughter may be regarded as legitimate topics for research in the social sciences as methodological principles to be adopted in carrying out and representing the findings of research they have been neglected. Indeed, those scholars who have made use of humour - wit, satire, jokes etc – risk being regarded as trivial and marginalised from the mainstream. Yet, in literature the idea that comedy can tell us something important about the human condition is widely recognised. This neglect of the potential of humour and laughter represents a serious omission. The purpose of this paper is therefore to make a case for the place of humour as a methodology for the social sciences.

Hosted by Elizabeth Maylor

Refreshments in Common room at 3.30pm

Abstract: The maintenance of wellbeing across the lifespan depends on the preservation of cognitive function. Successful cognitive ageing requires precise regulation of activity and connectivity within and between large-scale functional brain networks. Such activity and connectivity can be estimated from task-based and task-free functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). However, common approaches to the analysis of fMRI data are confounded by age-related changes in neurovascular signalling. Furthermore, previous studies have typically separated the evaluation of differences in activity of focal brain regions from differences in the interactions between them. In this talk, I will demonstrate examples of recent developments that aim to refine current approaches and enhance the ability to investigate resilience or disorder of brain dynamics across the lifespan.
