Seminar HOW NOT TO WRITE SATIRE – PERSPECTIVES ON SATIRE IN THE ARTS by Habib William Kherbek
“This course will consist of a diverse series of sessions considering the role of satire in an era when reality regularly outstrips satire for extremity, absurdity, and credulity. The course will begin with the origins of satire in literature, then examine the distinctions between satire and comedy as well as forms of satire that are not traditionally literary. The role of contemporary art and satire will also be explored. Some course content material will contain strong language.” (Text & photo by courtesy of Habib William Kherbek, photo: Habib William Kherbek during his lecture at BAI, April 2019)
