Studies in American Humor publishes articles on topics, themes, practices, practitioners, and media across the wide spectrum of American humor, past and present, for an audience made up primarily of scholars and students in the humanities, especially literary and cultural studies. StAH values new transnational and interdisciplinary approaches as well as traditional critical and historical humanities scholarship.

Published continuously since 1982, Studies in American Humor is the official journal of the American Humor Studies Association.
