JWST 060 - (IS) The Comedy of Difference: Jewish Humor in America

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course provides an interdisciplinary and multimedia look at a popular American art form – Jewish humor. Like all comedy, the Jewish variety deals with the central themes of the human experience: family, love, sex, religion, politics, prejudice, identity, and other cultural norms – all premised upon the divisions and diversity characteristic of American society. At the same time, Jewish humor is a central element of modern Jewish culture, and its study sheds light on contemporary Jewish experience as well.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Same as CLL 120. Credit for this course or CLL 120, not both.
