The Offsetter recently featured an interview with Lauren Jo, the lecturer for Art 400, where they discuss how the class can study such a subjective topic within art. Jo insists that this healthy discussion of defining "what is humor in art" has added healthy discussion to the class curriculum. Also, understanding and exploring different types of humor within art has brought a different dimension to the class that was unexpected in the original curriculum. The class has a blog where students can share pieces of art they find humorous and discuss with classmates.
