Special Lecture — Noël Carroll (CUNY Graduate Center) "Humor and Morality"
Wednesday, March 19, 2014
8PM, University Hall 1050
In this presentation, Professor Carroll will address such questions as: Is humor ever immoral? If a joke is immoral, does laughing at it reveal that you have a bad character? Is humour ever less funny if it is immoral?
Carroll is the author of Humour: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford, 2014).
