Syllabi on humor studies courses, as well as related author or subject courses, have been provided by faculty for discussion and inspirational purposes.  Such syllabi change with each iteration and should not be viewed as settled documents but as works-in-progress.  Each syllabi remains the intellectual property of the author.
