Orlando & Everything After

Philosophy of Humour

When Virginia Woolf’s character Orlando (who was based on her lover Vita Sackville-West) transformed from a lord into a lady, this not only drew reference to Shakespeare’s themes of boys playing girls playing boys – but also launched British literature out of the closet. On this course you will learn the cultural history of Britain’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community through the prism of popular culture. We will look to 70s’ fiction, 80s’ pop, 90s’ cinema, contemporary comics and graphic novels to trace Orlando’s journey from past into present.

What do we mean by ‘humour’ and why is it important? Aristotle thought of wit as ‘educated insolence’ and jokes as ‘a kind of abuse’, Plato believed the basis of comedy to be ‘foolish false conceit’. Schiller of all people believed comedy to be the superior art form compared to tragedy. You will discuss the nature and value of what makes us laugh.
