The world is changing at an unprecedented rate. New technologies continue to proliferate and, with this, the world is becoming smaller and smaller. While such developments yield undeniable benefits and exciting possibilities, they often unearth and give rise to challenging local and global problems. Perhaps now more than ever, the world needs leaders and diplomats, people with the knowledge, skills, courage, and commitment to develop innovative and transformative solutions to today’s pressing issues.

Researchers are the world’s dynamic questioners, investigators, and problem-solvers. They are confronted with complex challenges that they can only solve if they have the skills and knowledge needed, the proposed solutions are approved by their scientific peers, and the accepted solutions are adopted by the people they are trying to help. Through Duke Summer Academy’s Global Researcher, you will gain the fundamental skills required to begin thinking like a researcher and contributing to discovery. Tomorrow's researchers will solve some of the most pressing social and scientific problems. Could one of those researchers be you?

Humor is a social phenomenon. Studies have consistently demonstrated that people will laugh more and harder at something funny when they’re among other people rather than when they’re alone. But as a socializing process, humor is a double-edged sword. It has the power to define who is and isn’t included—who does and doesn’t belong—and it can powerfully influence those whom we admire versus those we view as objects of ridicule or disparagement. This tension lies at the heart of the deeply complicated relationship between comedy and marginalized people in contemporary society. On the one hand, humor that disparages people according to social categories can reinforce or deepen existing social hierarchies and inequalities (e.g., racist caricatures and sexist jokes). Yet socially marginalized people have also harnessed the power of laughter as a vital weapon to contest and combat the very terms of their oppression (e.g., ‘ethnic humor’ and feminist sketch comedy). This course explores these dual functions of laughter, examining how a sustained cultural analysis of humor and comedy can shed light upon the “politics of identity”—the strategies by which people have attempted to define and redefine their sense of self within and across existing social categories in the contemporary United States.
