Dr. Fran Bender
Politics of South Park
Now in its sixteenth season, South Park is a popular television show that constantly pushes the limits of political correctness. Despite its primitive animation and edgy humor, the series addresses such political topics as immigration, global warming, race relations, conspiracy theories, and religion. This course will examine these and other current issues as dramatized in this crude, two-dimensional medium.
