Background Information



ISHS Membership Status and 2017 Membership Renewal

Membership Status

Please indicate whether you are a new or a renewing ISHS member and whether you are currently a student.


2017 ISHS Membership Renewal

ISHS Membership dues fall into two categories—Regular membership and Associate membership. Regular members receive a subscription to the Society's journal, HUMOR: International Journal of Humor Research. Regular membership dues are $110 with a print subscription to HUMOR and $69 with an online subscription to HUMOR.  Associate membership dues, without the journal, are $30.

Subscribing members who join or renew online with ISHS before January 31, 2017, can take a $5 discount on membership--$105 for print subscribers and $64 for online subscribers. No discount applies to Associate membership.

ISHS Scholarship Fund

In 2006, Holy Names University established a scholarship fund to support graduate students attending ISHS Conferences. Scholarship donations go to fund our graduate student awards program, and each year the Society gives one $500 stipend and two to three $250 stipends to graduate students who have submitted exceptional papers to the annual conference. These students typically present their work in a special Conference session.

Please consider making a donation to the ISHS Scholarship fund to support scholarship in humor studies.
