I am a PhD candidate in Greek literature and I am interested in the representation of laughter in literary texts. In my dissertation I intend to examine the manifestation and function of laughter in the works of Lucian of Samosata. More precisely, I will focus on the dialogues that are attributed to the satirist, with respect to their relation to the tradition and the contemporary literary production.
