Founded in 1975, the American Humor Studies Association promotes scholarship on all aspects and periods of American humor through conferences, publications, awards, and the general support of a community of dedicated scholars of American humor.

The AHSA has sponsored joint conferences with the Mark Twain Society of America in Cancun, Mexico; New Orleans, Louisiana; and San Diego, California.  We post Calls for Papers for conferences and journals in our Announcements section.

Both a scholarly journal, Studies in American Humor, and a bi-annual newsletter, To Wit, are published under AHSA auspices and are included in the cost of Membership.  We maintain a list serve for discussions of humor called American Humor.
