FYW-1280 Humor and Politics


This course is about the intersection of politics and humor-what makes politics funny, how that may vary depending on the audience or messenger, the purposes humor serves in political communication, the forms it takes, and its effects. Students will reflect on and evaluate various forms of political humor, research what scholarly sources tell us about political humor and its effects, and produce their own political humor. Students will study and write about these ideas in ways structured to develop interpretive, analytical, and argumentative writing skills appropriate for college-level work.   4 credits.
