Jewish Studies 697 Capstone Course: Jewish Humor.Course flyer: JWST 697
For undergraduates and graduate students, and required for students pursuing the Jewish Studies major. Jews and non-Jews alike have credited Jewish people with a particular sense of humor. But what turns a joke, an anecdote, a graphic novel, or a movie into a representation of Jewish humor? Based on theories of humor such as Bergson’s “Laughter: An Essay in the Meaning of Comic” (1900) and Freud’s “Jokes and Its Relation to the Unconscious” (1905), the course seeks to define how humor and Jews were related in history by exploring material from a variety of sources from Europe, Israel, and America. Professor Ruth von Bernuth.
