The History of Comedy
Instructor: Dr. John Paul Spiro, Assoc. Teaching Professor, Villanova University
This course will survey some of the major practitioners of comedy from Aristophanes
to Larry David and Tina Fey. We will explore comedy as a genre (or a family of genres), as a stance and as a world-view. Some questions we will ask and attempt to answer: Is comedy subversive or conservative? Is it local or universal? What makes something or someone funny? What does comedy show us about ourselves? We will consider plays, novels, films, television, the visual arts and stand-up.
