Date, Time and Location Event
2015-16 Program Theme Delight in the Fight: We’re obsessed with funny. Clips, tweets, vines, books, snaps, memes-- all going viral. But how do we think about humor, its limits, and its power? Do we see comedy & joy working in the midst of violence or revolution? Who resists, laughs, and survives in the face of injustice? Yearlong programs explore comedians, creators, tricksters, & outlaws as models of gumption, hilarity, resilience. disarming injustice with humor & joy #delightinthefight delight in the fight
