I’ve long been fascinated by cultural differences in audience reception of Twain’s humor and satire. My focus has been on perceptions by region, age, ethnic identity and economic strata. 

We are aware of macro differences (by national language) but is there a study of micro differences (by different groups that share a common language and conflicting cultural influences)?
