The Seriousness of Humor with David Bouchier

Thursday, March 26, 2020

1:00 pm


Essayist and broadcaster David Bouchier will discuss the delicate business of trying to be funny about serious topics. His own discovery, loss and rediscovery of humor as a way of explaining the world has convinced him that devices like satire and irony really do capture the attention of readers, and may sometimes even change their minds, but at some cost to the writer’s own reputation as a serious person. Co-Sponsored with the Southampton History Museum.
