Lee Campbell is an artist, curator and lecturer, currently undertaking PhD research at Loughborough University School of the Arts, UK. Since 2000, he works within public sphere participatory art practices where he uses humour as a strategy to explore audience involvement. He has exhibited with such artists as Tomoko Takahashi, Gary Stevens, Hew Locke, Mark Wallinger, Marcia Farquhar and Ryan Gander. In 2008, he was interviewed by Libby Purves on BBC Radio 4 Midweek about his performance Fall and Rise at Whitstable Biennale 2008. In 2005, he curated All For Show, a presentation of short films described as ʻslapstick theatricsʼ, ʻawkward and macabre sense of humourʼ and ʻcringingly funnyʼ, shown in various contemporary art spaces in New Zealand, Germany, The Netherlands and the USA. In March 2012, he organised an international humour and art symposium at Mostyn, Llandudno, North Wales entitled With Humorous Intent.

Giselinde Kuipers is associate professor of Cultural Sociology at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. She is also (part-time) Norbert Elias professor in the Sociology of Long-term Processes at Erasmus University Rotterdam and editor-in-chief of Humor: international journal of humor research. She has published widely in the fields of cultural sociology, the sociology of humor, media studies, and cultural globalization and transnational culture. In 2006, she published Good Humor, Bad Taste: A Sociology of the Joke, comparing Dutch and American humor styles. From 2004 to 2009, she has been working on a research project, funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), on the diffusion, translation and reception of American comedy in four European countries. She has already published several papers based on this and is currently working on a book about this project provisionally titled Comedy and hegemony: American television and European audiences in the transnational cultural field. But this title may well change.
