COVID-19 and Humour Research
CZECH CORONAVIRUS HUMOUR – INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECT
Contribute your data to international research! We collect all examples of coronavirus-related humour (jokes, cartoons, memes, videos, clips, sketches, parodies…).
Please upload any examples, files, links to “Úschovna in IS” at:
Or send them directly by email to Iveta Žákovská: email@example.com
We also appreciate zipped folders with multiple examples (for instance downloaded from your WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook, etc.)
After processing, we will share the data in the international database run by our Dutch colleague and expert on disaster humour Giselinde Kuipers.
Thank you for your help!

All teaching will be online in Autumn 2020
We would like to say hello on behalf of the Deapartment of English and American Studies and wish you a successful semester. We appreciate having you as our students and we hope for a mutually fruitful learning experience. Especially, we would like to welcome our First year students – you are new to the Department and despite difficulties, we believe you will soon find your passion for English studies with us with a help from your teachers and peers.
It is with extreme sadness that I have to inform you that our former student and PhD graduate, Danica Maleková (née Gašparíková), passed away earlier this month, aged 46. Many of you will remember her from her studies in the department.
