  • Overview

    This module will undergo a certain reconfiguration in light of the fact that next year?s JS students will have had a JF module in ?Comedy: The Basics? (unlike either of this year?s JS or SS students) and next year?s SS students will not. The focus from the start will be on ?comedy and the comic? ? in dramatic texts and in film, television, stand-up and online contexts ? in its various guises, as it infiltrates and inflects other generic territories, and as it takes on ?serious? projects. The module throughout will engage with issues of comedy and the comic with regard to performance, context and political implications.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
