Humor in Jewish Literature

Jun 2008

I enjoyed this class and really like Jeremy Dauber. I mean, this class is Humor in Jewish literature (and media)-that means reading Shalom Aleichem, Philip Roth, and watching Seinfeld, Mel Brooks, and Wood Allen! The main downside is that in some sense it can be too easy and cause people to lack motivation. Because people who pass/fail the class get the assignment lengths cut in half, most people (including myself) lacked motivation and often did not come to class. And since all the assignments are papers, you can really come to just a few classes and do fine. Still, I like Dauber-he's really funny, friendly, and smart-and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys humor. (Which I hope is everyone)
