“Humor must not professedly teach, and it must not professedly preach, but it must do both if it would live forever.”
With these words, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) gave us our charge: We must live forever through humor. The Twain Lecture Series on American Humor and Culture therefore seeks to address the wide range of topics that face all humans through humor and with the guiding presence of America’s greatest humorist and most typical American.
The Twain Lecture Series consists of a primary annual lecture in the spring and additional smaller events that usually take place in the fall. These additional events include “Laughing to the Polls,” “Music & Truth,” and talks by Twain scholars. Some of these events are one-time guest lectures, but we hope to make others regular fixtures of the Series.
