The Humour and Religion Network aims to foster the exchange of ideas and forge interdisciplinary and international collaborations between humanities researchers and social scientists; interfaith leaders and social action stakeholders; as well as comedians and humourists, who all share a common interest in cross-cutting issues at the intersections of humour, satire and comedy, with religion, faith and belief.

Themes of particular interest include:

- Humour about religion in the context of blasphemy/free speech
- Humour and religion in popular culture
- Laughter and interfaith engagement
- Humour traditions in different religions
- Practices and lineages of religious humour, past and present
- Scriptural humour
- Philosophies and theories of religious humour
- Social science approaches to humour and religion
