Film Comedy: Further Exploration (Grad Only)
In essay form, graduate students will explore a comedic subgenre, hybrid, or cycle we have NOT considered in depth this quarter, e.g., parody/spoof, satire, mockumentary, war comedy, capers, buddy cop, family comedy, etc.
The project should consider the subgenre's or hybrid's or cycle's:
Students might use our profiles of the Marx Brothers, Cary Grant, Dustin Hoffman, etc. as examples of how to format the paper. The essay should not exceed 2,000 words, and a brief annotated bibliography (roughly 10 entries) should follow.
Thesis/proposal due via email by 11PM Sunday, Oct. 16. Paper due at the beginning of class, Tuesday, Nov. 15.
