What is satire? Perhaps you have laughed at satirical TV shows without much reflection; or, perhaps you have considered how satire works to entertain us, while also critiquing our institutions or aspects of our culture. We will explore the role that satire and parody play in a range of mediums, including classic literature like Rabelais and Swift, but also non-fiction, political cartoons, music, and TV shows such as The Simpsons, SNL, and “news” programs such as Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Class time will be devoted to viewing, discussing, and interpreting disparate forms of satire and parody. There will be a strong emphasis on writing, analytical thinking, and research skills.
