Bergren Forum - Paul Butterfield

"What Does a Joke Mean?"

When we joke, we do not mean exactly what we say. And yet, when people joke about us, we sometimes feel that we have really been insulted or disrespected. In this talk, Paul Butterfield considers what relationship holds between the humor we share and what we really believe.

The Bergren Forum takes place every Thursday lunchtime during the semester from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm in Nevins Theater. You're welcome to bring your own lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.

For further information, contact Paige Bock (bock@alfred.edu, (607)-871-2217) or John D'Angelo (dangelo@alfred.edu, x2821).
