Liisi Laineste and Sharon Lockyer edited a special issue of HUMOR: International Journal of Humor Research titled “Jokes, Targets and Spontaneous Order” (published in June 2019) to pay tribute to the esteemed and influential humour scholar, Christie Davies, and his important contribution to humour studies, social sciences, academia more broadly, and beyond.
The aim was to bring together a varied mix of contributions from his colleagues, friends and students and to give a flavour of Christie’s interests and influences across topics, disciplines and continents. Authors are from United Kingdom, America, Japan, Italy, Poland and Greece. They represent different disciplinary perspectives (e.g. folklore, sociolinguistics, linguistics, philosophy, American literature and culture, translation studies). The editors have also included a bibliography of Christie’s impressive and all-encompassing publications from academic articles through to arts reviews compiled by Moira Marsh.
